My mind was filled with images of giant ancient columns, ancient Egyptian inscriptions, colossal statutes and mummies during my travels in Egypt over 13 years ago.
The night views at Luxor were fantastical too.
We gathered at this square overlooking the many giant columns in front of us.
Night has just set in and the lights for illuminating the columns were just switched on.
Nobody in the square seem like leaving, they were all taken in awe with the sight of columns in front.
I thought it was a good moment to take this photo.
I continued to stay on until the place was completely dark.
Giant columns have always interested me, here is another image showing light illuminated columns which have dwarfed those passing by.
These images were taken hand held with film cameras and were scanned a year ago.
Please enjoy 🙂
isnt great we live in a time when we can see the world at home thanks for sharing
This is something unthinking even a few decades ago!
The atmosphere in Luxor is absolutely touching!
Yes, indeed memorable!
How could these have been built, considering the technology at that time – fantastic.
Even if built today, it will still require a lot of resources and heavy equipment. Thanks John!
Love the second one, makes you wonder how they built it… Great capture!
Yes, they are just gigantic! Regards, Michael
these are so fantastic, it must have been so amazing to be there.
It was a memorable and amazing experience!
