Travel Photography: Seven Postcards From Egypt

A friend of mine visited Egypt recently, and was there during the riots. They came back with some fantastic photographs of the landscapes, buildings, people and desert, and I persuaded them to open a Zazzle store. Which they did, testing the waters (or the sands?) with a few amazing postcards. My favourites so far are the donkey and the sunrise, but there are some even more incredible ones that aren't even uploaded yet!

In Petra, Jordan (yes - the place Indiana Jones visited!), we have a donkey, standing in the pathway to the Higher Sacrificial Altar, amongst the ancient sandy rocks.

...and the dramatic broken-off pillars of the Great Temple.

Lastly, a couple of kids relax in the corner of one of the ancient ruins carved into the rocks of Petra.

From Egypt itself, we get to see the roofs of Abul Hole in Giza.

 And here are some amazing rock formations on Mt. Sinai on the way to Dahab from Sharm el Sheikh, with triangular strata like rows of camels along the base!

And a breathtakingly beautiful sunrise in the very early morning from the top of Mt. Sinai.

Lastly, back in Abul Hole, some colourfully burdened, ungainly camels take a drink.
