Photographer's Note

The Nubian civilisation built a series of pyramids on the banks of the Nile, just north of Khartoum. It's one of the most popular places to visit in Sudan.

The pyramids are not on the scale of those in Cairo - they are much smaller structures. Most of the caps have long disappeared - I think the Germans were to blame (but I may be wrong). Recently the site has been excavated by archeologists but the place still remains much as it was. The dunes roll up to the ruins and the place remains quite remote.

This pic was taken on my first desert overnight stay outside Khartoum. I had a little 2MP camera then, so there was no reason to my photography. Hopefully when I go back I'll do a better job of capturing the place.
