Photographs of the Great Temple of Ramses 11 at Abu Simbel and those of his wife's temple of Nefertari with some interior images as well.
Abu Simbel Wall Relief EG02069JHP 
 Abu Simbel Great Temple interior war scene battle fighting chariot in the hall with Nubian style Osiride Statues of Ramses 11 in the entrance Hall and extensive wall reliefs but not of the best quality in terms of detail and style. A photograph like this is no longer possible as there is a total ban in all such tombs in Egypt although these were taken when it was permitted but tripods were not allowed and in the very poor light the best quality is not always achievable and very strong tungsten lighting was used on the internal white plastered walls giving a colour caste beyond the camera at the time to balance.
