Egypt > Abydos & Dendara (7 files)

Images of two important sites north of Luxor near the River Nile but usually visted as an extra tour either by road or a day cruise.
Dendera Temple EG007125jhp 
 Dendara Dendarah temple Nile Egypt hieroglyphs wall carving spotlight sun in this beautiful mainly Ptolemaic and Roman structure although the site extends back into the earliest periods of Egyptian existence and it is also famous as having one of the only representations the famous Queen Cleopatra V11 with her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion. The temple can be reached by road from Luxor and is also the destination for a popular day cruise on the River Nile from Luxor via Qena. Walking around the many darkly lit passages and rooms there are occasional gems like this where a hole in the ceiling or wall lets a spotlight of sunshine highlight just one part of the elaborately carved and decorated walls.

Egypt > Aswan in general (4 files)

Images in this gallery relate to Aswan in southern Egypt covering the city, the River Nile and related sites except for more important places such as Philae, The Nubian Museum and Seheil Island Rock carvings.
Aswan Elephantine EG004836jhp 
 Elephantine Island Aswan Egyptian buildings mudbrick walls streets room houses visited during a separate excursion and not usually included in standard Nile package tours. Taking a ferry over and paying for a museum and island visit is straight forward. This photo was taken in 2000 when restoration and excavation was ongoing and is record of progress at that time. It is also interesting to visit the famous Nilometer which was used for recording the start of the annual flooding of the Nile or inundation. The Nilometer is situated directly across from the equally famous Old Nile Cataract Hotel, written about in Agatha Christie’s Death on the Nile and which featured in the film of the same name. The island would have had strategic importance given its size and predominant position in the centre of the river.

There are the remains of several Temples to various Gods associated with the Island, the most notable being Khnum, the ram-headed provincial God of the region, Lord of the Cataract and Hapy, the Nile God. Khnum’s consorts were Satet/Satis and Anuket. Pre-historic remains and carvings have been found and occupation of the Island spanned almost the whole history to Egypt including a gateway showing Alexander 11 and Greco-Roman Necropolis of the Sacred Rams. Considerable occupation of the Island by high officials is evidenced by the spread of houses and shown in some of these photos. There is also evidence of a Jewish settlement from Aramaic papyri finds. A small but interesting Museum exhibits finds from all the periods of occupation and is well worth a visit. No photography was allowed. There is also a garden museum with statues of Middle Kingdom local nomarchs.

As several of the photos show is partially restored Temple of Satet with some painted relief blocks in place and the areas not found left a drawings showing figures in position. There was evidence of considerable reusing of older buildings particularly by the ruler Nectanebo 11, see also his naos, and later Alexander and two temples attributed to Amenhotep 111 and Tuthmosis 111 that existed at the time of the French expedition in 1800 where subsequently destroyed during civil unrest.

Nubian Village Wall Decoration EG051528JHP 
 Egypt Aswan Nubian House Living Room Wall Decoration Ethnic Photograph in a Nubian House often visited on trips in feluccas on the River Nile to the Cataracts and the western bank with Aga Khan Mausoleum or camel rides into the desert to visit St Simeon monastery. This village on the West Bank is more of a tourist site as against a much more genuine village on Seheil Island which is only visited usually to see the Rock Carvings. These photos were taken with a compact camera to be less intrusive and I was advised by the tour guide not to use my professional gear.

Photographs of the three Giza pyramids of Khufu, Khafre and Menkaure, the Sphinx, temples, Solar Barque museum and western cemetery mastabas, including the Light and Sound Show night views.
Giza Tomb Entrance EG050914jhp 
 Tomb Chapel interior pillars carved Akhetmehu Khenementi carvings tombs Giza in this mortuary chapel situated in the Western cemetery between the Great Pyramid and that of Khafre and open to the public and a welcome diversion from the crowds that surround the nearby Pyramid of Khufu. These photographs are a mixture of natural light time-exposures and some using the rare opportunity to light with flash, given the go-ahead by the custodian. They were taken in JPEG’s whereas today I would always use RAW files and having the advantage of a tripod I would always use natural or even mixed light where possible thus avoiding flash hot spots; flash incidentally does not cause damage to the paintings despite many such claims and restrictions.

Once there would have been 23 diorite statues of the king standing by each column but only one survives in the Cairo Museum. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm f2.8 Nikkor or Tokina SD 28-70mm f3.5lens with a Red filter, rated at 200ASA and processed in Aculux for 14 mins.

Egyptian Plants InfR EG02049jhp 
 Egypt holiday hotel Movenpick Giza cactus plants infra red film grounds taken at this very pleasant hotel Jolie Ville near Giza and the Pyramids to the north of Cairo. It used to be a long run through the centre of Cairo after landing usually around midnight and no great fun to eventually get to bed around 2am to rise again for the first day’s excursion usually starting at 8am. Today a circular road around Cairo means much shorter transfer times but if you can manage to go out a day earlier and have a first day with sleep in time and a relaxing start to what can be a very hectic schedule. It is easy to take a taxi from the hotel to the Pyramids and have a leisurely look by oneself prior to doing the more concentrated guided package trips.

The hotel is on one level and set in well established gardens and with a cool feel to the atmosphere surrounding the secluded rooms. These photographs show the type of arrangement there is of paths all leading to the swimming pool, some pool side restaurants and the main reception dining room area. There is some limited shop facilities and a bank. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm f2.8 Nikkor or Tokina SD 28-70mm f3.5lens with a Red filter, rated at 200ASA and processed in Aculux for 14 mins.

 Egyptian Cairo hotel Movenpick jolie Ville cactus succulents infra red film grounds taken at this very pleasant hotel Jolie Ville near Giza and the Pyramids to the north of Cairo. It used to be a long run through the centre of Cairo after landing usually around midnight and no great fun to eventually get to bed around 2am to rise again for the first day’s excursion usually starting at 8am. Today a circular road around Cairo means much shorter transfer times but if you can manage to go out a day earlier and have a first day with sleep in time and a relaxing start to what can be a very hectic schedule. It is easy to take a taxi from the hotel to the Pyramids and have a leisurely look by oneself prior to doing the more concentrated guided package trips.

The hotel is on one level and set in well established gardens and with a cool feel to the atmosphere surrounding the secluded rooms. These photographs show the type of arrangement there is of paths all leading to the swimming pool, some pool side restaurants and the main reception dining room area. There is some limited shop facilities and a bank. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. It was taken using a Nikon FM manual camera, 28mm f2.8 Nikkor or Tokina SD 28-70mm f3.5lens with a Red filter, rated at 200ASA and processed in Aculux for 14 mins.

Photos in this gallery include the whole of Karnak itself, the open air museum, temples of Khonsu and Ptah and the Sound and Light Show night images.
Karnak Temple SS984627jhp 
 Karnak Temple Egyptian Obelisk dawn sunrise central court pillared room towards processional way near the most sacred part of this huge sprawling site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and Karnak is the largest religious complex on the Nile. This photograph is looking back into the main area of the temple from the central court area, now a large open space in front of unusual Festival Hall of Thutmose 111. The figure is standing looking into the inner sanctum, the Granite Sanctuary of Philip Arrhidaeus who ruled briefly after the death of Alexander the Great. The obelisk is that of Hatshepsut while the smaller one on the left is that of Thutmosis 1. The distant view goes beyond the Processional Way of the Hypostyle hall, through the western Pylon, over the River Nile to the distant west bank Theban hills. In the foreground are the truncated columns of an area which was one of the oldest areas of Karnak. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect. This particular photograph was taken in 1998 as part of a Stars and Signs cruise and we were able to access the temple at sunrise before it opened to the main package tour traffic. This allowed photos to be taken in beautiful golden early morning light which was particularly useful in highlighting some of the rich wall reliefs.

 Egypt Luxor Hotel River Nile View balloons dawn West Bank Hatshepsut looking over the quiet River Nile on a sunny September dawn from one of the riverside balconies of this long standing central Luxor Hotel on the city waterfront. This was my first visit to Luxor and I was lucky to get changed to a room in the north wing which was considerably quieter than one in the centre of the hotel above the swimming pool, various restaurants and a dance floor. It also offered great views to the West Bank and in this case two hot air balloons starting their trips over the West Bank. In 1994 the Hotel was the Etap but is now the Mercure and has a great location on the promenade with easy access by foot to the Luxor Museum, to public ferry points for crossing the Nile and to nearby shops or just enjoyed a leisurely walk along the tree lined waterfront by the berthed cruiseboats and feluccas.

It is a mixture of open air and covered museum exhibits with some remains of the temple area with column bases. Some of the coloured wall reliefs are exquisite and because of the natural light available were easily photographed despite being inside. There is also a replica of the famous Israeli Stele, the original being in the Cairo Museum. This is a visit that would have to made outwith the usual West Bank package tour although easily arranged and is easily found next to the Ramasseum.

Photographs in this gallery are of the various Tombs of the Nobles on the West Bank if the Nile at Luxor in the area called Qurnet Murai
Luxor Menna Tomb EG006726jhp 
 Egyptian Luxor Tomb Noble Menna Scribe Royal Tomb Reliefs walls room is one of many beautiful tomb decorations amongst the Tombs of the Nobles on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor. The Menna Tomb-Chapel is cruciform in design located in the Upper Enclosure [Tomb 69] was a Scribe of the Royal Fields during the reign of Thutmosis 1V around 1400BC. This was one of the first Tombs of the Nobles I visited in 1994 and I was taken immediately by the colourful painted reliefs, difficult to photograph as protected by Perspex sheeting and only lit by reflected light done by the custodians. The area around the Tombs has now been greatly improved with removal of many of the old modern houses and entry to these fascinating burial sites made more accessible. Visits to these tombs tend to be privately organised rather than being part of a package tour but it is easily organised with a taxi from the East Bank hotels, payment for selected tombs is made at the ticket office beforehand near the Colossi of Memnon with the area being very close to the ticket office.

Photography certainly the last time I was in Egypt in 2007 had been banned in all the tombs so these photos although not very good technically are useful as a record of the nature of the tombs and especially their paintings. These images have not been sharpened during post production but will benefit from some USM sharpening prior to use. Hand held as no tripods were allowed and using slide film, Fuji 400asa, did not give great leeway to get decent photos, oh for my Nikon DSLR with 6400ISO. The hand reflected lighting used in some tombs causes a hot spot and nothing by way of a balanced light but it is daylight balanced. However being direct sunlight reflected off tin foil would probably being doing more damage to the paintings than a suitable wide angle flash with UV filter. Given that most of the paints used in these tombs is mineral based then actually either method would do no measurable damage. The Perspex sheeting, however inconvenient, is to stop the physical touching of the paintings accidentally or otherwise, by inquisitive hands or swinging backpacks, and is absolutely vital protection to preserve these invaluable unique irreplaceable paintings. Some of the obvious damage to the paintings is not all modern, as his eyes have been gouged out possibly by an enemy in ancient times.

 Medinet Habu Temple Eastern gate migdol rear view Egyptian Thebes Luxor located on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor and a complex of temples is now dominated by the mortuary temple of Ramasses 111. Apart from being in excellent condition generally, it offers much to see including some beautiful and detailed reliefs, the best coloured are in the second court and especially its scale. Not usually included in most standard tour packages, this temple is worth the effort to be visited privately. This photo was taken during a visit in November 1998 with a Stars and Signs Tour and is of the eastern gate, the usual point of entry for visitors. The upper chambers of this high gate were where the Pharaoh Ramesses 111 is thought to have had private rooms to retreat to, maybe with ladies of his harem, when visiting the Temple and might have been where there was an attempt on his life.

This photo is of the Ptolemaic gateway which was a latter addition to the Small Temple which lies outwith the main Temple. The gate with its winged disc emblem and still with remains of original paint would have been an entrance through a mudbrick pylon no longer in existence. This photo shows the huge area of mudbrick buildings, magazines, storage rooms that encircled the main Temple of Ramesses 111 that were within the massive mudbrick enclosure walls of the overall complex. On the north side and looking westwards to the Theban hills. This was taken near the location of the sacred lake.

Alexandria Roman Amphitheatre eg9613936jhp 
 Egypt Alexandria Kom el-Dik Roman ruins architecture stage area piers stone walls Mediterranean coastal city is no longer reminiscent of the ancient city from Pharaonic times and little of that ancient time remains. A few isolated sites can be visited and this is one of the smaller municipal parks called Kom El-Dik or Dekka with some interesting and reasonably preserved Roman ruins and ongoing archaeology probably dating from 2nd C AD. The amphitheatre could accommodate 800 seated on 13 rows of grey and white marble seats and once had a domed roof, now long gone except for a few columns that once supported it. Nearby are the remains of a Roman bathhouse and nearby piscina which when I was there were still being excavated. The City has a distinctly European rather than Egyptian feel to it; it is sometimes offered as a day trip on a Cairo package but is seldom part of the main Nile packages. I hired my own taxi and the driver was sufficiently knowledgeable to take me to the main ‘ancient’ sites I could manage in a few hours.

Black Pyramid Dashur eg0095jhp 
 Egypt Pyramids Amenemhet 111 Dahshur Black mudbrick desert rubble Red view ruined structural problems was started early in the 46 year reign of the King but is thought to have had structural defects because of its location close to Lake Dashur as well as too many internal rooms and passageways which could not support its weight. The Pharaoh, Middle Kingdom c1800BC was not buried in the pyramid [in Hawara] but two of his wives were and their remains were found by Dieter Arnold in 1976-83. The beautiful pyramidion in black gray granite, possibly never set in place, is in the Cairo Museum. The pyramid is one of several still standing at the Dashur necropolis although over shadowed by the more famous and probably oldest Bent, the slightly later Red or North pyramid visible in distance as well as others more ruined which were built towards the end of the pyramid era.

Luxor Tomb EG942813jhp 
 Egypt Egyptian Luxor Tutankhamun Theban hill mountain Valley King Tomb entrance stairs looking into one of the most visited places in the world probably and certainly in Egypt beneath the Theban mountain on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor famous for some of the most important Royal burials of this ancient civilisation and this one if the most famous. It is in some ways relatively disappointing as against some of those larger tombs with long descending tunnels, descending rapidly into something akin to a concrete garage with only the one room decorated and containing a coffin under a glass cover in which the boy king's remains lie. It is busy tomb despite costing extra and in which photography is not allowed-absolutely! Although I suspect a few mobile phone photos have been taken these days-in 1994 my first and only visit all cameras had to be left at the entrance. I am surprised now at how I was able to take this photo without a person in site-usually this entrance area is packed solid with visitors.

Valley Kings EG0213069jhp 
 Egypt Valley Kings Thutmose Tomb KV43 sarcophagus screen bare room in the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor which was robbed in antiquity and later restored by Horemheb through his official Maya. In the Tomb-Chamber is a red granite sarcophagus with still very brilliant colourful decoration as illustrated in the photo of the Goddess Nephthys.
Thanks to the capability of the modern digital camera and adjustments in Photoshop reasonably accurate colours can be exhibited of tomb paintings lit by low level artificial light when tripods and flash are not allowed such as the head of Anubis. This was taken before the current ban on tomb photography was introduced when you could purchase a ticket to photograph in two tombs in 2002. Unfortunately most of the photos of the painting had to be taken through Perspex which diminishes their quality as it obvious in several cases.

This ancient Recumbent Stone Circle with altar stone, flankers and some outer monoliths is found deep in the forest off the Keig to Monymusk Road via My Lord’s Throat which runs along the southern side of Bennachie. After leaving the main Insch Road [B992] there is a straight followed by a curve to the right round the edge of Cothiemuir Wood. Adjacent to a field looking back to Keig there is enough room to pull off the road on the verge, cross the road and there is an obvious footpath up through the many mature trees and up a gradual slope. The walk into the stone circle takes about five minutes following the footpath which meanders through the trees and past some of the Natural Burial area plots.

This ancient Recumbent Stone Circle with altar stone, flankers and some outer monoliths is found deep in the forest off the Keig to Monymusk Road via My Lord’s Throat which runs along the southern side of Bennachie. After leaving the main Insch Road [B992] there is a straight followed by a curve to the right round the edge of Cothiemuir Wood. Adjacent to a field looking back to Keig there is enough room to pull off the road on the verge, cross the road and there is an obvious footpath up through the many mature trees and up a gradual slope. The walk into the stone circle takes about five minutes following the footpath which meanders through the trees and past some of the Natural Burial area plots. This is a Historic Scotland protected site, it is not signed and there is no access for wheelchairs.

Ballater Refurbished Station qax2473jhp 
 Ballater Old Station summer sunny finished rebuilt fire destroyed Deeside Scotland Aberdeenshire town which is some 40 miles west of Aberdeen in Aberdeenshire in North East Scotland. These photos taken in June 2018 show the completed reconstruction following the disastrous fire during the week of 10th May 2015 which all but destroyed the wooden building as can be seen in this photograph, including the Waiting Room Museum, the restaurant area, some small businesses although a replica railway carriage as used by Queen Victoria was saved. The original station was opened in 1866 and closed 100 years later in 1966 following the Beeching Cuts. The Station was as far as the Deeside Railway extended from Aberdeen and allowed Queen Victoria easier access to Balmoral Castle than previously travelling overland from Edzell. It was later used by HM Queen Elizabeth on her annual holidays at the Castle until the Station was closed when the railway line was disbanded in 1966. Happily the new station will once more be a central part of the tourist experience in the town. Ballater lies to the north of the River Dee it is a popular tourist centre for visitors travelling the length of this beautiful valley going southwards to Perth, visiting Balmoral Castle or Crathie Kirk or as a stopover before venturing northwards over the Lecht to Inverness.

Glen O Dee 9Sept97 141038jhp 
 Banchory hospital Glen O’Dee Nordrach sanatorium granite tower closed silver birch trees in this Aberdeenshire town some 18 miles west of Aberdeen in North East Scotland on the River Dee with this photo taken in September, 1997 just before it officially closed down. The town has always been a main visitor centre either for day trippers from Aberdeen or the usual flow of coaches and other visitors heading from Aberdeen westwards along Royal Deeside to Braemar and from there south to Perth or north to Inverness. It is also offers a very scenic route southwards over the Cairn O’Mount to Mearns. The river is a famous salmon fishing water which flows from the Cairngorms eastwards into the North Sea at Aberdeen. A colourful summer display and memorial Park is passed on the left hand side after leaving the town centre, it is adjacent to the start of the Golf Course and to the south is the distinct hilline of Scolty Hill with its Memorial Tower.

The Glen O’Dee was sadly burnt to the ground in 2016 owing to an act of arson by teenagers. It is promised by the current owners/developers that this beautiful building would be restored. It was to have been converted into flats having fallen into disuse as a hospital given the costs of maintenance, H&S, Fire Regulations and of course the eradication of TB generally by modern medical advances. At the time of the fire it was in a very sorry state of disrepair. Originally opened in 1900 by Dr Lawson of Banchory as one of the earliest commercial sanatorium’s and with a design based on a German model, with a central granite tower, but mainly wooden construction with all rooms facing south for the sun while at the rear were the corridors and service rooms. It treated TB patients, including w. Somerset Maugham, based upon the pine forest air and plenty of sunshine idea. It closed in 1928, was later a luxury hotel, commandeered by the Army during WW2, in 1948 the Red Cross used it for treatment of ex-servicemen and women with TB, had a short-lived revival during the 60’s Typhoid outbreak in Aberdeen and in 1955 became a convalescent home under the new NHS until it closed in 1998 when a hospital facility in modern purpose buildings was constructed.

Findlater Castle vbn1271jhp 
 Findlater Castle Ruin stonework walls standing Jim Henderson Photograph closeup is a ruined castle whose current ruins were probably erected before 1411 by Sir John Sinclair of Findlater before his death at the Battle of Harlaw near Inverurie. Built in the style of his castle Roslyn, it was taken over by Ogilvie of Deskford during the reign of James 11 and its fortifications strengthened. Subsequently handed to Sir John Gordon but was abandoned in 1600 and fell in ruin by 1638 never to be repaired again. It is located on a steep buff below rugged and almost inaccessible cliffs just north west of Sandend near Portsoy on the northern coast of Aberdeenshire facing the Moray Firth. There was an original fortress on the site dating back to before 1246 when records indicate that it was to be fortified during the reign of King Alexander 111 to fend off attacks by the Vikings although it was subsequently captured by them. The Ogilvie’s had lost interest in Findlater Castle after they decided to build Cullen House a somewhat different elegant mansion close to Cullen.

Once there was a wooden bridge giving access to the castle after a steep descent down the cliffs. Little now remains of the building and it is now in a dangerous state of repair and although accessible should be taken with great care. Remains of some walls which include two floors with vaulted rooms possibly the kitchen and a dungeon can be easily seen from the clifftop as in this photograph. There is a signed carpark as you leave Portsoy and pass Sandend. From the carpark at the rear of farm buildings you pass a doocot on the left but continue on straight down towards the cliffs along a grass cut path and you will see the castle below you where there are seats and an information board.
The name it is suggested might derive from the Norse Fyn is white and leitr for cliff, giving Fynleitr or Fynletyr whereas another suggestion is from the Gaelic with fionn for white and leitir for cliff both relating to the nature of the cliffs around this area exhibiting high deposits of quartz.

Findlater Castle vbn1269jhp 
 Findlater Castle Ruins structure Aberdeenshire Coast Scotland clifftop autumn October is a ruined castle whose current ruins were probably erected before 1411 by Sir John Sinclair of Findlater before his death at the Battle of Harlaw near Inverurie. Built in the style of his castle Roslyn, it was taken over by Ogilvie of Deskford during the reign of James 11 and its fortifications strengthened. Subsequently handed to Sir John Gordon but was abandoned in 1600 and fell in ruin by 1638 never to be repaired again. It is located on a steep buff below rugged and almost inaccessible cliffs just north west of Sandend near Portsoy on the northern coast of Aberdeenshire facing the Moray Firth. There was an original fortress on the site dating back to before 1246 when records indicate that it was to be fortified during the reign of King Alexander 111 to fend off attacks by the Vikings although it was subsequently captured by them. The Ogilvie’s had lost interest in Findlater Castle after they decided to build Cullen House a somewhat different elegant mansion close to Cullen.

Once there was a wooden bridge giving access to the castle after a steep descent down the cliffs. Little now remains of the building and it is now in a dangerous state of repair and although accessible should be taken with great care. Remains of some walls which include two floors with vaulted rooms possibly the kitchen and a dungeon can be easily seen from the clifftop as in this photograph.
