Pyramids of Giza after the Storm



Giza, Egypt - October 8, 2005
The sun and sky were ominous that morning having been washed with a fast-moving dust storm spreading across the desert. The quiet moments after made for some interesting photographs.

TR,
A stunning shot. I like the way you cropped it. I'm trying to figure out if you filtered it or not.

Wow...how awesome! I'm green with envy. :)

BigAssBelle said...

what an incredible image. one day, maybe, i hope to see that myself. i can't even imagine it. your photo takes me there for a moment. gorgeous.

Michelle Johnson said...

I love this picture. My first thought before I read the post was he's made a drawing of the pyramid. I can't believe this was a camera shot. My husband would love this because he wants to go to Egypt someday. Thanks for sharing. Have a nice night, what's left.

Durand said...

Nice shot. Just stumbled across your comment from 2/7 about my childhood sunglasses -- you are too kind. Japanese tourists thought you to be Elton John? -- I would have SO capitalized on that!

BigAssBelle said...

well my goodness, you must be on a lengthy jaunt. i dropped by to see what was new in your creative world. hope to see more shortly.

Mary said...

Ok, where have you been?
