Beautiful light !!!!

Andrew, thanks for your comment about the "Egypt collection". there are so many things to take photos of that I have posted rather than I would do normally. You and grojec are right about the light. The smoke from a fire, just off to the right, heped enormously and I waited until the gap in the palms allowed you to see a bit further back into the view (the view was sliding past rapidly as we were on a nile cruiser at the time).

Hi vicleaf, I'm honoured that you have added me as a favourite photographer! I will try to continue to upload photos that you like! Cheers, William

Welcome as ever Giles, thanks for your kind comments on Egypt. It seems so far away now that I am back in the UK! Cheers, William

Another fine picture from you Steven, capturing a mood of this fine country that I never got. (But I did get some of its other moods). This smoke certainly gives an atmosphere to the scene. Looks like you had a great time. Like.

Cheers, Herb

Hi Herb - yes we had a great time, privileged to have been there when virtually nobody else was!

Cheers and thanks for the like, William
