Pyramids of Dashur, Egypt.

Pyramids of Dashur, Egypt.

The Bent Pyramid, (the Pyramid of Snefru), the Black Pyramid, and the Red Pyramid (the Pyramid of Snefru) , viewed from the Complex of Djoser, Saqqara.

Dahshur is the area bordering on the necropolis of South Saqqara, where several pharaohs chose to site their pyramids. Until recently this important pyramid field was little visited, being part of an Egyptian military zone with no admittance to the public, but was opened to tourism in October 1996.
Its importance is in representing evolutionary phases in pyramid building, beginning with the monuments of Snefru, the 'Horus Nebmaat', founder of Dynasty IV. Snefru was the father of Khufu, whose 'Great Pyramid' at Giza is one of the ancient wonders of the world.
Snefru probably began his career in pyramid building by attempting to complete the monument of his father Huni at Meidum. He seems to have abandoned this for a time and his workforce was relocated to Dahshur, where he began to build another pyramid, named 'Snefru is shining in the south' and which we now know as the 'Bent Pyramid' because of its shape.
Snefru's second monument at Dahshur is about 4km to the north and known as the 'North' or 'Red Pyramid'. This was to be Snefru's third attempt at pyramid construction (including Meidum) - his architects now using the technical experience gained from previous structures, a reduced angle of slope and less ambitious plan. It is thought to have been begun in Snefru's 30th year of reign and dates found in builders' marks on blocks from the Red Pyramid have proved to be of great importance in giving a clear picture of the time it took to build the pyramid.
The name 'Red Pyramid' has derived from the colour of limestone used in constructing the pyramid's core - it's casing of white limestone is now completely missing.




The pyramids at Giza

A small problem with the exposure setting on this photo, but in the end it actually turned out not bad.

The pyramids are just massive. I knew they were big (having seen them in films and photos and documentaries, etc) but just wasn't prepared at the sheer size of them in real life. When you're up next to them, just imagining how it was possible to build them thousands of years ago, before modern machinery is just mind blowing.

Looking though all my photos when I got back, I was disappointed that none of them showed the sheer scale of the pyramids. You can tell they're big, but you just don't get the sense of how big they really are. However, I noticed that at the very bottom right hand corner of the closest pyramid in this photo is a person. At least this helps give some idea of the scale. You may need to zoom in to see him.
