Foto Friday – Karnak Temple (ca. 1391–1351 BC)

Karnak Temple

While travelling back down the Nile several years ago we ended our trip at the ancient city of Luxor where the famous Karnak Temples are sited. This ancient temple complex is a travel photographers paradise with endless opportunities for the avid snapper. The immense forest of columns in the Great Temple tends to be at the top of everyones wanted list.

I too, like thousands before me, could not resist snapping away while wandering around inside the inner sanctum, dazed and in a total state of shock and awe at the sheer size and magnitude of the whole place. The vast mix of ruined temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings, notably the Great Temple of Amun simply blows your mind away.
