Karnak Temple

Karnak being the largest complex of temples in the world is a marvel of sights and one could easily spend hours wondering around. Saying that, I spent a whole day at Karnak testing my photography skills and trying new ones too. First entering the labyrinth armed with a wide angle lens shooting the corridors, chambers and huge pillars then exiting with a zoom to shoot more detailed images. 

 Here are a few images that I think could win numerous awards( its good to be positive):

Avenue of ram-headed sphinxes

Once joined with the avenue of sphinxes at Luxor Temple the avenue was 2, 700 meters long.
