Photographer's Note

A shot taken during the sound and light laser show at the pyramids and Sphinx. The original white limestone capping is still intact on the apex of the Great Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops in Greek) in the bg. It was too dangerous to attempt to remove it. The rest of the limestone capping was stolen for construction of mosques in Cairo. If you don't want to pay the additional fee for the sound and light show there is an equally good view from the rooftop terrace of the 4th floor of the Pizza Hut just across the road from the main gate.
