Photographer's Note

This is the Chepren Pyramid. It is part of the group of ancient Egyptian pyramids that consists of the Pyramid of Khufu (known as the Great Pyramid) and the Pyramid of Cheops; the somewhat smaller Pyramid of Chepren and the relatively modest-size Pyramid of Menkaure, along with a number of smaller satellite edifices, known as "queens" pyramids, causeways and valley pyramids, and most noticeably the Great Sphinx. Current consensus among Egyptologists is that the head of the Great Sphinx is that of Chepren. The Pyramid of Khufu is the largest and tallest of the Pyramids but the Pyramid of Chepren looks taller and larger because of the elevation of it's base.
