Photographer's Note

Esna is located on the west bank of the Nile some 55 km south of Luxor.
behind the orange minaret is the temple of Esna, dedicated to the god Khnum, his consorts Menhit and Nebtu, their son, Heka, and the goddess Neith, remarkable for the beauty of its site and the magnificence of its architecture.
But we haven't seen it.

Two barrage bridges straddle the Nile at this point: Navigation, particularly Nile cruisers can be held up for hours while vessels negotiate their way through the lock system.

We also had to wait.
