En route to Abu Simbel
Sunrise over Lake Nassar

First glimpse of Abu Simbel - from the air

Note:
The large and small temples
The articifial mountain
The long shadows of morning
The lack of people
The little section of Nile showing the water level
From this vantage, it is hard to get a feel for the massive size and the amount of effort it took to move the entire thing to this location.
