In the process of producing the panoramic version of the sunset at Pincer Lake, I accidentally opened up all the files in photoshop as layers, and, liking the effect, I worked with it and produced this.
A highlight from my recent backpacking trip along the Western Uplands Trail in Algonquin Provincial Park. Sunset from one of the campsites on South Pincher Lake, two days into the backcountry.

Eggplant fries in oil at a street food vendor on road 9 in Ma’adi, where it will be served alongside delicious falafel-like sandwiches for a cheap and filling breakfast.
This photo was actually taken from the vicinity of the Pyramids, looking towards the desert. Giza ends so suddenly at the Pyramids, and the desert begins, that, aside from the vehicle tracks, one would have no expectation that there was anything out there in the desert.
This scene reminds me of nothing so much as the promotional shot for the movie Eat, Pray, Love, where the Western women who are the main characters are riding on elephants with their parasols. These camel-riders were doing the circuit around the Pyramids of Giza.
Layers of stone blocks leading up the the peak of the Pyramid of Khufu (Cheops). Being at the base of the pyramids, one really appreciates what a mad endeavour they were, transferring so much stone out into the desert, to build giant mounds for small chamber tombs.
The same photo as yesterday’s, done in the style of a plate in an old book, from the late 19th/turn of the 20th century.
