Partial Solar Eclipse
Cairo, Egypt
Oct 25 2022

This photo was taken few minutes after the peak of the partial solar Eclipse in Cairo, the Great pyramid of Giza with the Camel

The duration of the clipse in Cairo was 2 hours , but the weather conditions were so extreme, it was 30 minutes only without heavy cloud cover .

For 3 months , I was planning for this image, I bought the need lenses and filter and made 3 visits to the great pyramid to select best scene
