for the fave on Temple of Luxor. This was the home of the Egyptian fertility god, Amun. You can easily walk to it from the Nile.
on Luxor Hieroglyphics. I'm delighted you love ancient Egyptian monuments, ruins, and history.
on Horus Ceiling and Columns. When it was constructed, they would fill the area with dirt. When they finished a top level, they'd remove the dirt and work on down.
on Abu Simbel. It is known as the "Nubian Monuments," which run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari, to commemorate his victory at the Battle of Kadesh. I had to wait about 20 minutes standing in 120ºF heat to get this photo. It was swarming with tourists. I only had 10 seconds to get a shot with no people in it.
on Sphinx with Nose. When I typed "Sphinx" into Google Images, I got "Results 1 - 18 of about 604,000 for sphinx." I did not want to be 604,001 with a typical tourist photo of the Sphinx at Giza, Egypt. So, I added a nose. I also took the liberty of erasing two buses and the tourists surrounding them. That way, you can contemplate a Sphinx with a nose and no distractions.
on Ramses at Memphis. I'm happy you love ancient Egyptian monuments, ruins, and history. Ramese believed the statues would hold his soul. He put his statues everywhere.
on Zodiac on Esna Temple Ceiling. It's very appropriate that the Zodiac signs were on the ceiling.
on Three Pyramids at Giza. Even though they look nothing like they did when they were first created, it is still like traveling back in time if you use you imagination a little bit. How they once looked :www.cens.org.uk/EGYPT/Graphics… Inside: s.hswstatic.com/gif/pyramid-17…
Karnak Obelisk Queen Hapshetsu This symbol of the Queen's strength was in Karnak Temple.
on Temple of Luxor in Twilight. This was the home of the Egyptian fertility god, Amun. You can easily walk to it from the Nile.
