Photographer's Note

Early hour of the morning at Luxor.
Luxor is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. The population numbers 506,535 (2012 estimate). The modern city sprawls to the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Waset, also known as Nut and to the Greeks as Thebes or Diospolis, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open-air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. The west bank at Luxor is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs of the west bank Necropolis, which includes the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. It is much more than what we refer to as the Valley of the Kings, though many have called the whole of the area by that name (from wikipedia).r
