"The World Fears Time But Time Fears the Pyramids"

The Sphinx stands guard in front of the pyramid of Chefren. As old as the pyramids themselves, it bears witness to colorful history of this land.

This is the familiar "post card" shot. But still, I like this one personally because of the atmosphere the light sand storm provided.

I must tell you that that sand storm got worse during that day. Just before I boarded our tourist van, I took a last glimpse of this view - and then, as soon as closed the door, the wind blew hard and the entire view was covered with sand.
