Desert is often associated with yellow, sandy, beige color. Those are the colors of Sahara in Algeria and Morocco. But the desert can also by red, dark red … I know a person that collects the sand of the different deserts, and he has some red sands in his collection. The reddest, darkest sand I saw at his place came from southern Jordan, from the Wadi Rum desert. And this is what the red sand looks like:
The sand in Wadi Rum is very soft at the dunes, but it can also be quite rough as it crumbles from the sandstone rocks. Just as its consistency varies, the color scale is very rich – within the dark red there are shadows.
