Egypt - Photographs by Shaun and Wendy O'Boyle

View of the valley of the Kings from the ridge that separates the valley from the Nile river valley. We hiked over this ridge in the blistering hot sun, a tough trek but a nice way to enter the valley of the kings. 
View of the main plaza area in the valley of the Kings, entrances to the various tombs can be seen penetrating the walls and floor of the valley in many places. 
Entrance to Tuthmosis III tomb in a remote corner of the Valley.  You have to climb up these steps, cross a pit and then descend steeply to enter the tomb.
