I made a post last month with some color digital photos from my trip to Egypt in February (here.) Those photos were made in the northern part of the trip, in the area of Cairo and the pyramids.
Now, here are some photos that I made when we were up in the southern part of Egypt, mostly around Luxor and Aswan. (Yes, as the river Nile flows from south to north, one goes “down north” and “up south” in Egypt.)
While the northern area is dominated by the pyramids at Giza, Abusir, Saqqara and Dahshur, the monuments further south, which generally date from later periods, are more in the line of temples and tombs – the great Karnak temple near Luxor (or, as I like to call it, “Karnak, the Magnificent”) being the best known temple, with the most famous of the tombs, of course, being those in the Valley of Kings at Luxor.
I have also gotten all of my black & white film from the trip developed, but it may be a while until I post any of those, as I still have a lot of photos from my 2015 trip to Ireland to post, and I really have not even begun to scan my film from last year’s three week trip to China and Tibet.
So, enjoy these photos of Egypt now.
