Woman and Child, Luxor, Egypt

Woman and Child, Luxor, Egypt

I spotted this woman carrying a child across this early morning sun-drenched field, as my tour group landed unexpectedly in it.  Our hot-air balloon took off before sunrise from a field across from the Colossus of Memnon and the Temple of Hatshepsut, on the western shore of the Nile. The wind currents blew us across the Nile, and we surprised a group of young children on their way to school, and this woman and child as they saw our balloon landing in front of them.

I was fortunate to be able to capture this sun sculpted portrait.
