|Pyramids from the Northern Cemetery at MeroŽ, 3rd c. B.C. to 4th c. A.D. By the 4th c. B.C., the Kushite kings had moved south to the Sudanese savannah and built a capitol at MeroŽ. Here southern cultural traditions slowly prevailed over the cultural heritage of Egypt.|

Thanks for this photo. I' ve heard a lot abut the pyramids in Sudan. I think this is a very good photo because of the fact that I cab feel the sand coming through the screen.
Hello dear Moncef
another view from Sudan, warm and colourfull photo, interesting place, well done
Reminds me of the poem Ozymandius by Shelley. Crumbled ruins in a vast wasteland.
Fantastic capture of this inhospitable place and a good decision to place the pyramids in their desolate context.
