Nice view of the Sinai. On the right we're looking right up the Gulf of Aqaba (Red Sea), past the Dead Sea along the Jordan Rift Valley.

3D renderings like this one are an incredible asset as true aerial or satellite photography would simply not allow such a long clear view of the Earth. The topography of the area can be viewed as in no other way.

My lighting things a bit harshly the true 3-dimensional perspective is gained. Softer lighting would make features more difficult to analyze.

Great job, an a nice clean website. A real asset on the Internet.
