I had high expectations of the pyramids, and felt a bit of pressure to come away with at least a few photos without crowds of tourists and clouds of pollution smothering the view. Given the recent unrest in the area, there were a lot less tourists than usual for this time of year. But unfortunately the day was still hazy, with high temperatures and a thick, suffocating wind blowing. These photos don’t show the blue-grey sky or the dull yellow sand, but after a bit of work in post-production I feel the gold and cream tinge cuts through the smog and captures just how dry and hot the area can be.
