Wonderful photos, Carla! This is one of my very favorite monuments in Egypt so I appreciate your sharing them with us. It's a dream of mine actually to visit Deir el Bahri and stroll among the ruins. I'm surprised by the amount of pigment still present on the walls, and I like the reliefs with the nature scenes, but Hatshepsut as Osiris is always striking to see.

But that last picture is breathtaking! It's like something out of one of those coffee-table books. Nice job! Very Happy

The detail from the offerings table picture showing how vines seem to have been twisted around the flowers is amazing! Egyptians were so elaborate in everything they did-i love it!
