Abu Simbel Temple

This was taken at the Abu Simbel temples in Egypt. Created for Ramses II and his queen Nefertari. This site was the furthest south we went in Egypt. While most images show the exteriors of these temples, the insides are equally amazing, with towering statues within. Everything in Egypt was so grandiose and of epic porportions, it is an endlessly inspiring place.
