|The kingdom of Meroe existed in 1,200 years, only to continue in the shape of the kingdom of Nubia, which lasted another 1,100 years. Of these two kingdoms, Meroe was a great power in its days, strong enough to eat up Egypt for half a century. The region managed to impress the people of its time, housing agricultural achievements and efficient iron industry, a high culture, where an own alphabet was developed. And the pyramids have a distinct and elegant style, even if they're far smaller than the ones we find in Egypt.|

Looks fantastic, great colour and contrast, well taken!
Really a strong impact compisition. I like the well saturated warm colours and the way the pyramids emerge from the sand.
A rare shot,
Good composition. Wish you had included a human element to give a sense of size.
The wind blowing on the sand dune gives a special effect to the right side.
KIss from POland!

Very interesting place like this to share from your travel and this shot looks perfect still with light breeze as seen from the blowing sand at right side, and yes, it will be even greater to see a camel or a man just walking on this ground to give it scale and more so, a life element. Good work.
Stunning desert landscape and architecture of these pyramids. Awesome colours. TFS.
