Thanks to all who took part in last week's playing card challenge. This week, as the weather gets colder here in the North, I thought we might go somewhere warm, very warm! So here we have a sandy desert, what will you make with it?

Dean, that will be the Nile river just behind that line of trees I'm thinking, and that grassy bank on the left will be an ittigation ditch. If Dave had allowed us to use more pixels, we'd have been able to see the donkey on a stick pumping water out of the river and into the ditch.
I was thinking about what the shadow areas were - maybe remnants of a dust storm.
The shadows must be where the dragged the stone away for the pyramids
the spice must flow!
Scary worms !
Jacob - you may need to add to you 'As Always' message to include 'Don't use Chrome to view my image'. 🙂
Thank you for the alert, Dean. Is there no way to follow (such) a link with Chrome?
There is no link when using Chrome when you put it on your own website.
Jane, are you saying that there is none of these options when RightClicking in Chrome?
Open Link in New (whatever) or View Image for direct access, or Copy Link Location or Copy Image Location for indirect access.
And if that is the case, is that a general Chrome non feature set, or limited to me/mine (I know that the inserted images are treated as just another part of the page)?
As I finally (believe I) understand it now, Dean, with Chrome you are just looking at an empty post, with or without the Click/RightClick text. I guess you have had to find it in the Page Source.
That is far worse than I thought. I hope the addition above is meaningful.
Thank you very much.
Rather than providing links to click which, quite rightly, many will not do, why not just use the forum image widget to embed the picture in the post and make it easy for all viewers?
Dave, I am trying to find out more about the issues at hand, and I will send a PM shortly.
I would not want to drink at the oasis with that nearby !
Do we see an oasis or is it another mirage?

I'll be singing that all night now Jane. The horse and rider fit well in the scene.
I first learned this song when I was six, then there was a gap until I listened again a decade or so ago and realized he and Dan never found the water. 😔
