 Sunrise River Nile water Minya Egyptian clouds sky trees silhouettes taken from the hotel overlooking the River Nile as the base for visiting the sites of Bani Hasan and Amarna. This sunrise apart from its fantastic colours was also fascinating for the huge flocks of small birds that fly from their roosting trees as the first hint of dawn. The earlier photographs have series of dots which are the flocks of birds flying northwards, from right to left, but as the sun came up most of the flocks had passed and fewer birds interfered with getting photographs of the beautiful sunrise. We stayed in the Mercure Hotel Nefertiti, an aging hotel which had seen better days, from which these dawn photos are taken and it overlooked the newer chalet type complex called Hotel Aten. The dawn was around 6.00am on our second day and the earlier than required get up was certainly worth it for this sunrise.
