A Taste of Egypt

Posted in Egypt, Travel by Dennis Wright on July 27, 2010

My it’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog. That will change though because I have a trip to Egypt to document.

This is just a taster, a sunset taken from the sundeck of our cruise ship, berthed some distance from the Nile riverbank just to the South of Luxor.

Nile Sunset

The clear cut disk of the sun is, I think, the result of a sandstorm which had blown up in the Aswan area a couple of days earlier and resulted in heavily dust-laden air. Well that’s my theory.

It was one of those occasions when you see something spectacular and realise you have just a few minutes in which to go get your camera before the moment has gone.
