Amazing shot. The pyramid seems to have a light of its own, mesmerizing people and drawing them to it.
Beautiful symmetry in this shot with the sun in the apex of the pyramid. The sun's rays extending upwards appear to be coming from the pyramid - all the Egyptologists will love this, as I do.
@Lawrence Bradford Thanks for this extended optical class, and the lovely comment but the sun was actually behind the pyramid, not myself. The wide glow and refracted light beams come from the pyramide multifaceted glass. It was - I am sure - easier to capture this way !
Amazing image on all fronts. What seals it for me is the gentleman in the foreground, wandering towards the light and drawing you into the centre focus. Beautiful!
WOW ! I am so thrilled I CAN'T BELIEVE IT ! Amazed to see Paris shining of its thousand lights on the Nat Geo home page. Thank you all for your support.
