First one's absolutely spectacular Peter.
Perfect B&W conversion with dramatic sky to boot.
The other B&Ws are well suited also.
Brilliant captures of these grand structures in upper Egypt.
Well done.

It must have just been incredible to see that in person. I really like #'s 1 and 3 for some reason.

Wow

I would love to visit the place one day. The images are surely stunning.

How long did you manage to stay in the location?

Hi James,
first of all, thank you
To answer your question, we stayed in Egypt for 8 days. Abu Simbel temples took one morning to visit. Unfortunately we arrived bit later than planned and sun was high up and few hundred were clicking around like mad. But we (numbers 2,3,4 are by my wife) tried our best.

Peter
