Beautiful photo. I always wanted to see the pyramids and have passes by quite close sailing through the Suez Canal 3 times when we were poor as church mice and could not afford the excursion.
Ooo yes, I had forgotten that they are none other than rather large mausoleums!!I have not been to Egypt, and don't ever expect to. However, I find the facts and figures re the construction of the 'pyramdids' to be totally astonishing. The number of bricks, the number of people, over however many years. How on earth would they demand a cost-benefit analysis of something like this to prove that it was worth the use of tax-payers money?I image there are lots of people hanging around here trying to make a living selling trinkets, just like at the Eiffel Tower.I would love to see a map of all the places you have visited, Jose. It would be covered with pins!Thanks for this reminder that some grave markers out a bit unusual!
Impressive! reminds me good holiday memories!
This is really something. Nothing like my Mayan pyramids, much more impressive! I can't imagine how they built these back then.
Nice to see this monument . Wonderful capture.
Não tenho vontade de conhecer o Egito, e não me perguntes o por que, eu não saberia argumentar.
Omigoodness. Now THAT is a cemetery.
these are definitely grand structures.
Fantastic composition...what great lines that lead the eye right out of the photo and including the people and animals gives us a sense of scale. Wonderful sight. And no, I wasn't around when it was built!
Well I definitely think you take the prize for the earliest grave .. 2560 BC .. it's such a massive structure and a great capture with the camels in the foreground.
Of course! The most obvious tomb of tombs! Great shot!
never fails to amaze is photo of this wonderful place.
Good photo. You beat me to it. I have some pyramid shots in my collection of taphophilia as well.
Great shot! I've always been interested in ancient Egypt.
Hey that's a great contribution to the meme. To many different ideas people are posting.
You nearly forget that in reality it is a big big tombstone for someone. Thanks for the reminder . Nice picture by the way.
That is a huge grave, haven't been there yet, but maybe once..
Wow! How lucky to be able to actuaklly see it up close and in person. One of my all time dreams.
Awesome monument. Was in Egypt a few years ago, stayed in Cairo and visited this wonderful pyramid.
such an amazing work. i hope i get to see this one day~laura
Wow, that is a different and beautiful composition of a very well photographed landmark. I really envy your travels, is it related to your job? I wish i can still reach this place in this lifetime.
That is something I'd love to see! And quite apropos — I just rented out a room in my home to a doctoral student from Saudi Arabia. His family also has an apartment in Egypt and I'm learning a lot about the culture. Quite an experience for me but not as good as being there like you :-) Another stunning image JM!
Very interesting, we can imagine several adventures around!Love your composition, it's really a beautiful shot!Léia
I love this picture -- thank you for sharing! It's kind of easy to forget that the pyramids are tombs.
That is some big gravestone, and all the better with camels.
