Minimize El Alamein

This Flock-1 image from 28 August 2016 focuses on the coast of El Alamein, infamous for being the focal point for the North Africa campaign during the Second World War.

In this image, just south of the Marina El Alamein, thousands of Commonwealth soldiers are buried in the El Alamein War Cemetery.

Also visible are stark contrasts between the deep richness of differing shades of blue the Mediterranean sea offers and the aridness of the desert the further from the coast you roam.
