Snapshot: Luxor, Valley of the Kings

1 June 2011


Just after sunset, looking west over the Nile in Luxor, Egypt at the Valley of the Kings – the site of Tutankhamun’s tomb, along with lots of other Pharaohs. Ancient man associated death with sunset and buried his people on the west side of the river. These days, sunsets evoke positive emotions. Appreciation of ancestors; appreciation of nature.
