Photographs of the Valley of the Kings from tomb interiors as well as exterior views of the valley including the tombs of Ramses 1V, KV 43 and 19.
Tomb Ramasses IV EG01712JHP 
 Egyptian Tomb Ramses 1V [KV2] Burial Chamber Sarcophagus Ceiling Nut Colours in the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of the River Nile at Luxor, the ancient Egyptian capital city of Thebes and is a spectacular example of true majesty with scale, colour and elaborate craftsmanship carved out of solid rock. This was the only opportunity I had of using a tripod, special ticket available in 2001 and I had a roll of tungsten artificial light balanced slide film which allowed long exposures and a decent depth of field. The custodians could not have been more helpful and even cleared areas for me to photograph free of visitors but oh for my D700 DSLR.
