Great holmertz 2022-01-06 1:57

Hello Malgo,
I didn't take any photos inside the graves because the light was usually not good enough and flashes were forbidden. I didn't have a flash anyway, but did you use one for the WS?
I don't remember this particular grave, but maybe I saw it. I was reminded by my diary that in one grave, probably in the Valley of Nobles, the light was so complicated that the guard used a mirror to reflect the light on the paintings, one at a time. It was the only way to see them but very frustrating to see each one only for a short moment. I liked the graves of the Nobles for showing daily life in a way not seen in the graves of the Pharaohs.
These photos are all beautiful and interesting and very sharp, flash or not.
Kind regards,

Talking To holmertz: No flash

Hu Gert,
Thank you for the critique. Of course, I haven't used the flash. I never use flash in places like this. But the graves were well illuminated.
This time I saw three graves, in my former trip I also saw a few, but I do not remember which. I have heard that there are graves of the craftsmen and there the paintings are very well preserved and beautiful. also the graves of the queens. Unfortunately, I had not enough time to see all I would like to see. But i am happy that i decided for this trip.

Have a nice day
