Sunday Morning Photograph December 4 2022: Sunset at Luxor Temple in Egypt.


Luxor Temple was constructed as early as 1392 BCE; and along with Karnak Temple, it was one of two primary temples on the east bank of the Nile River — and I had the pleasure of experiencing this ancient complex prior to sunset, which created some interesting opportunities with lighting on the sandstone structures.
