Photographer's Note

A side view of the statues adorning the temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Dayr al-Baḥrī, Thebes, Egypt. It was built in the 15th century BC. Luxor is the modern city, and Thebes just to the north was the name of the ancient city. Karnak Temple is also in Thebes. This was the site of a terrorist attack in November 1997 in which 58 tourists (mostly Swiss) & 4 Egyptian guards were killed.

On the day I visited, it was almost deserted and a very hot 46c.
