wunderschön Pic - die Spiegelung, der blaue Himmel, die Schleierwolken, die sonnengetränkte Farbe der Ruinen und des Sandes und sogar noch zwei Seidenreiher :) - perfekt!

Schöne Spiegelung! Andere Seite ;-)

Warst du auch bei der Son-et-Lumière-Show? Hatte da ja die schlimmsten Befürchtungen, aber es war gar nicht so schlecht.

Hallo Sonny,

ich bin lieber mit Taxi und Stativ zum Luxor Tempel gefaheren, wie Du siehst ;-) Die in Kairo habe ich von der Dachterasse eines Restaurantes gesehen, bequem sitzend mit Stativ, daher die Sphinx und fand es so deutlich besser

Ciao

It's no fair! How did you get to go there? They blew their whistles and called me back!! And I'm sure I looked as harmless as anyone could--a white-haired woman with a cane/seat!

By the way, it's a beautiful photo.

Hello Marilyn,

I came frome behind where I took this one and some other shots and noone shouted or waived. Maybe you didn't offer some money? I took one shot in Abu Simbel where the guardian asked me if I'm willing to pay. Here I like the color of the water and the reflections - and maybe the had fear if someone with a cane falls down, on this side it was steep but earnstly I think it depends how many people are there and what kind of guardian.

Ciao
