Flood Stage



This is a picture of the Nile River at flood stage. The picture was taken in 1890's. You can see a village in front of the Pyramids, and villages on camels. While the picture was taken over a hundred years ago, the scene is probably similar to what things looked like thousands of years prior.

  1. This is a wonderful photo, and a view I don't remember seeing before. Just as a photograph, it has some great qualities, and is a historical record, it's equally interesting.

  2. Beautiful! I agree with shoreacres. I love the photo and the reflection of the geometric pyramids is striking.
