Details:
Yesterday, I visited the Pyramids of Egypt. At sunset, the Sun was aligned to the noble tombs, lying to the west and south of the Great Pyramid. Sunset was fascinating. The Sun disappeared beyond the tombs, visible in silhouette. A large sunspot is visible clearly. My camera is Sony DSC H5. The tomb to the far right in the third picture is the Tomb of Seshem Nefer, a senior official from the Old Kingdom.
