Suur, suurem / Big, bigger (9) - Giza pyramids

Posted by
Vaido (Võrumaa, Estonia) on 24 March 2011 in Architecture.

The Great Pyramid of Giza is the oldest of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the only one to remain largely intact. Initially at 146.5 metres (480.6 ft), the Great Pyramid was the tallest man-made structure in the world for over 3,800 years, the longest period of time ever held for such a record.

Vanim ja ainus meie päevadeni säilinud antiikkultuuris tuntud seitsmest maailmaimest on Kairo lähedal Giza platool asuv Cheopsi püramiid, mis algselt 146.5 meetri kõrgusena omas peaaegu 4000 aastat maailma kõrgeima ehitise tiitlit.

The size of the characters give the scale of the size of stones which constituted this pyramid. The most beautiful are three, according to me, that of the Pharaoh Kephren. Nice composition.

I really like the contrast between the bright colors of the textiles against the plain ones of the sand, camels, and pyramid. Excellent work!

A lovely capture. The composition is spot on. It would have been really interesting to see this picture and the pyramid against the evening light. Have a great weekend. Cheers!
