Black Pyramid on a Winter Day


Riding near the Black Pyramid at Dahshur is an amazing experience any time, but yesterday was one of those crystal clear days with high rain clouds passing by. Truly incredible.

The clouds seem to have formed a pyramid behind the pyramid -- and I love your shadow in the corner!

Lovely shot. I like how you fit the shadow in there.

I love when clouds are low and heavy like that. Ditto on loving your shadow in the corner too. All the way in Colorado, I heard about people wanting to hold ceremonies at the pyramids on 11/11/11 and the government closing them off for the day. Did anything more happen with that, or did closing them down do the trick?

What a spectacular shot! Very dramatic sky and of course the shadow in the bottom left corner makes it a winner!

Simply mind blowing! One should wish for a dark cloudy day after taking a flight to Egypt for holidays and seeing some amazing views of the pyramids.
