Stera, Socotra

A lonely bush (Tamarix nilotica) and a lonely human in a vastness of sand!

Socotra has many areas of desert-like dunes, but Stera is perhaps the one most resembling a true desert, as in many places you you don’t see the end of the sand, but walk to the top of one of the dunes and you will see the backdrop of mountains in one direction (to the north), and the Indian Ocean in the other direction (to the south).
