Valley of the Kings

 

 

A note about taking photos, particularly in the Tombs on the West Bank at Luxor (Valley of the Kings, Valley of the Queens, Tombs of the Nobles). Please observe the "no flash photography" warnings when they are present. The light from a camera flash will do irreparable damage to the paintings in these tombs. More ultra violet damage has been done to these paintings in the last 100 years than has occurred in the previous 3000 years. The camera flash will bleach the colour pigments, rendering the paintings dull and eventually colourless.

 

I have successfully taken photos in these tombs using a SLR camera with a very fast film (ISO 400 and faster).
