 Karnak Temple Egypt Taharqa Kiosk infra red film B&W sphinx dawn greets the visitor after entering through the first Pylon when visiting this famous site located near Luxor City centre on the East Bank of the River Nile and it the largest religious complex on the Nile. This is a typical scene in the first court after entering through the main entrance of the first pylon with the remains of the pillared kiosk of Taharqa in a single papyrus column and the large block of alabaster, possible a barque station. Beyond is the second pylon with its decorated front and the beginning of the famous hypostyle hall leading to the distant obelisks and inner sanctuary. This particular photograph was taken using Kodak Infra Red film which gives this classic ghostly affect.

Karnak Temple SS984630jhp 
 Karnak Temple Egypt Sanctuary central court dawn hypostyle slab altar 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.

Karnak temple Ptah EG0214006jhp 
 Temple Ptah Sanctuary Centre columns Karnak Egyptian decorated Thutmosis entrance which is located inside the north enclosure wall of the Karnak Complex at Luxor on the East Bank of the River Nile. It is a delightful small temple and very seldom frequented so always quiet although an extra ‘entry’ fee maybe required to keep the local custodians happy. Constructed by Thutmosis 111 during his reign 1500-1450BC it shows continuous repair and additions through until the Ptolemaic period while inside the small sanctuaries are broken granite statues of Ptah, which is byond the altar stone and through the door in front and Sekhmet which is in the righthand sanctuary. On the day I visited we had very poor light conditions caused by an encroaching sand storm and it was very overcast which has happened to me twice now at this temple.

Egypt > Philae Temple Aswan (1 file)

Photographs in this gallery are of Philae Temple dedicated to the Goddess Isis, a relocated site on an island in the flooded River Nile at Aswan including the Light and Sound Show night photos
Philae Light Show EG052891JHP 
 Philae Egyptian Temple Light Show Interior Sanctuary Columns Spiritual Photo at Aswan in which, during the first section, spectators walk through the temple with areas highlighted at each stop but the time to take photographs is limited. The second part of the evening is seated and photography is very easy, a tripod is permitted and necessary for time exposures to be made as flash on cameras is almost pointless and more of a nuisance for other viewers. This Sound & Light Show is perhaps the most spiritual of those shown at other centres especially with the trip at night by boat to the island and the peacefulness that naturally surrounds this location.

South Leylodge Stones jkl8124jhp 
 South Leylodge Recumbent Flankers Stone Circle Kintore Aberdeenshire bronze Age historic ruined monument in a field [NJ766132] to the North of the dead end slip road signed Lauchintilly off the B977 Dunecht to Kintore Road. Only the flankers and recumbent appear to be left although there are several single standing stones in nearby fields, possibly monoliths from the original RSC but now useful scratching posts for cattle. Also called the South Ley Lodge RSC per Aubrey Burl’s book ref No: 98 P353 for his details regarding the site. Ian Shepherd in Exploring Scotland’s Heritage: Grampian suggests on page 145 that it might be an example of a RSC that was only that-the flankers and the recumbent and the rest of the circle was never completed. The point was also made that these stones were the first built as the largest and most important although this idea is somewhat contradicted in later studies made at Tomnaverie where these stones are thought to have been added as the final stage of closing out the monument. Ref: the moon and the bonfire, Chapter 5 by Professor Richard Bradley.

 Scotland summer Cothiemuir Wood wind blown pine large walk Keig Donside Aberdeenshire and now the focus for a nearby natural burial site with a spiritual connection going back to Bronze Age 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.
