The last of the ancient ruins I visited on my trip to Egypt happened to be the Temple of Karnak near Luxor. It was a high-note on which to close that chapter. The ruins at Karnak have been featured in films like Indiana Jones. Not hard to see why is it?
We arrived early in the morning as we had a long drive ahead that day, but for a photographer this was perfect timing, the warm morning light was in full effect much of the time we were there. I love the golden colors and the shadows that resulted.
But what this most reminded me of while standing near this massive column in the Great Hypostyle Hall at Karnak was standing beneath the massive redwoods in California years before. There was that same feeling of being so small in such a massive setting. The wooden roof is long gone, and now these ancient pillars feel as if they hold up the very sky above.
