Abu Simbel, Egypt

This image was taken at the Sun Festival in Abu Simbel, when light enters the inner chamber and lights the statues (this happens twice a year). This was the first time I had seen the whirling dervishes and this dancer was spinning at such as a fast rate and was completely engrossed in the act. My first few attempts to capture this amazing scene in front of me failed. I realized I needed to capture the spin and the motion which attracted me to this. I set the camera on a tenth of a sec and handheld the camera. This image capture what I saw and experienced in that moment even though this photograph is just a moment in time.
