Sunday Sandy Snapshot #36

You are never sure what you will find in the desert, but even I was surprised when I found this old JCB near Madinat Zayed in the Western Region.  It wasn’t any old digger, this was one emblazoned with a thistle (national plant of my native Scotland) –  in a previous life held up traffic all over the Kingdom of Fife.  This photo was taken in August 2013, on our annual summer trip to the Liwa area.
