Photographer's Note

This is the approach to the famed Queen Hatshepsut Mortuary Temple. Or infamous, if you consider the 62 people that were killed in a terrorist attack in November, 1997. More information and photos from Wikipedia here:

"The Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw is responsible for the study and restoration of the three levels of the temple. As of early 1995, the first two levels were almost complete, and the top level was still under reconstruction."

If you're wondering why the lone tourist is using an umbrella in a clear blue sky, it's because it was 46c today in Luxor. In the shade.
