[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After the construction of the pyramids, an unprecedented set of catastrophic events hit the Egyptian Empire. These events were so traumatic, that they made it into the records of both of the significant cultures of the time. The Israelites wrote it up in the old testement of the bible in the Book of Exodus, and the Egyptians wrote it up in the Ipuwer papyrus (now in a museum in Holland). The papyrus has been authenticated, and was written about 1,000 years after the events.

These were known as the 10 plagues. First of which was the water of the Nile turning into blood.

Well this is not the Nile but the Tsitsikama River in South Africa. It is said that the roots from the nearby trees stain the river this dark brown red colour. Absolutely amazing

Added some hue and saturation
No other Adjustments made
