Karnak Temple at closing time (Luxor, Egypt) - DSC8310.jpg
Luxor, Egypt -- The first pylon of the ancient Egyptian temple of Karnak seems to glow in the orange evening sunlight.  Karnak was built over many generations of Egyptian pharaoh, as each successive king added pieces to this temple honoring the most significant god of the ancient Egyptian pantheon, the god Amun (later, Amon-Ra), the sun god. © Rick Collier / RickCollier.com
