Red Sea Dive

While in Egypt I went diving for the first time... on the Red Sea no less, incredible! Thought it took me quite a while to get used to being able to breathe underwater. Nothing fancy on this shot, but the little camera I rented is an awesome underwater shooter. I was very impressed with the Canon PowerShot D20. This was taken about 20 feet from the surface.

Back From Egypt

Egypt was incredible! We visited the in's and out's of Cairo and then fetched a plane to Luxor and Hurghada. We saw numerous pyramids and temples... the same ones you see on Discovery channel and so forth, but seeing them in person is a whole other experience. I will be posting some pics as I get to sorting and editing from Egypt, but you can see a few already on my http://mikeince.com/egypt/.

The photo here was taken at the entrance to the Valley of the Queens. The Valley of the Queens is located on the west bank of the Nile near Luxor. There is more than 70 tombs here. Queen Nefetari is probably the most famous of the tombs here, who was the wife of Ramesses II.

Vulture Mines

This is an old photo I came across in reorganizing all my pics. Glad I didn't miss this one! When I grabbed this shot, you could go in and out of all the buildings outside of the vulture mines. Now though - most of the buildings are even closer to falling apart, so its a bit too dangerous for the to let you in most of them. I assume someone else arranged all of these on the table before I found them. I snapped them as I found them. Vulture Mine operated from 1863 to 1942, so there is a lot of Arizona history here.
