Aerial view of Tin Merzouga, a remote part of the Algerian Sahara near the borders of Libya and Niger. The area is remarkable for the deep orange color of its sand dunes, which are colored by oxidation of iron minerals in the sand. Generally the more orange the sand, the older it is, as it has taken many millenia of exposure to water and sun to oxidize it to this degree.
