Photographer's Note

A neck craning view of the Grand colonnade of Luxor Temple in central Luxor, dating from 1400 BC when it was known as Thebes. It was another very hot day of 48c here! It appears this temple was used for the divine worship of Ramses II. Statues of Amun were shipped upriver from Karnak every year to this Southern Sanctuary, to give greater weight to the king's divine status claims. More information here:
