Pyramid of Khufu/Egypt by Nancy Richard

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The pyramid of Khufu (around 2560 BC.) is the largest in Egypt and the first successful true pyramid.

It was built for the 4th dynasty pharaoh, Khufu. (The step pyramid precedes this one, but is not a true pyramid because of its step structure.)

It is called the Great Pyramid Of Giza (or Cheops) and is the oldest of the seven ancient wonders of the world left largely intact. It has three inside chambers and is the only pyramid with both ascending and descending passages.

I am deeply concerned about environment, wildlife, and animal welfare, feeling a strong commitment to leaving the planet in better shape for new generations. Therefore, I support a number of charities that reflect those interests.

I have a degree in English and Library Science, but if I had my life to live over, I would have loved to have been a photographer, writer, and/or National Park ranger.

    This is an amazing structure. I am glad that you have added the great description, Nancy. Your composition here is excellent, in my eye. I love the activity taking place in the foreground. It’s funny, but there appears to be some sort of lightning rod atop this ancient behemoth. Were you able to go inside this structure? Again, great job Nancy.

  • I’m so glad you like the shot. I liked the activity, too. In answer to your question, I wasn’t able to go inside with my physical limitations. And, yes, I believe you’re right that there is a lightning rod on the top.

    I’m sorry to hear that you were unable to go in. I am sure that it is amazing inside. It would be surreal to actually step foot into such an otherworldly structure. Thanks for sharing!

    Ditto AndreaEL. I like the sense of proportion shown with the people at the very base, and those closer to the camera.

    It is truly a marvel to behold, sorry you couldn’t get inside, but it is quite a tiring climb. Most interesting though.

  • Thank you so much for your comment. I agree with you. The people at the base really give a true sense of proportion.
