Photographer's Note

This is a shot of the Philae Temple in Aswan, Egypt.
We were really lucky to get there before any other tourists arrived. No wonder, the guide took us there at about 2 pm when the heat was almost unbearable (almost 50 degrees C!). I think this is the only Egyptian attraction I could photograph without any tourists in front.

Philae Temple was dismantled and reassembled (from Philae Island to Agilika Island) in the wake of the High Dam. The temple was dedicated to the goddess Isis; accordingly, the Isis and Osiris myth is represented on some of the walls. As was pointed out by mrceow, you can still see the water marks on the walls and the columns.

I increased the sharpness and exposure.
