Art Print Notes:
It’s mind boggling how much truly ancient history stands on the streets of modern Egypt. Never mind the treasures that may still lie beneath the desert sands waiting to be discovered. By the time we reached Luxor, we had seen so many Egyptian temples and still had more to come. Running low on time, I never took a closer look at the Luxor temple ruins seen in this print. I captured this beautiful view of that ancient temple while walking by as my first day in Luxor drew to a close. Don’t you love the warm golden orange tones of the setting sun on that old architecture?
I suspect even an armchair Egyptologist would recognize the familiar lines of a New Kingdom Temple in this print of the Luxor temple ruins. I’ve read that the temples in what is now Luxor were dedicated to the Theban Triad of gods Amun, Mut, and Chons. What we see now was part of a larger temple complex that was once connected to Karnak Temple by an avenue of sphinxes. It’s always worth remembering as we gaze at these ancient ruins that they are just a ghost of the golden past. This is a little sliver of ancient Egypt marooned in the midst of a modern Egyptian city. And that makes it sort of amazing how beautiful they still look totally taken out of context, eh?
That incredible afternoon light shining on the Luxor temple ruins and the beautiful skies above were truly a treat. With only a few days in a given city, you run the risk of never getting such an atmospheric scene. In fact, I’m sure I’ve been in cities longer without getting such great light. It really makes for a dramatic and colorful ancient Egypt print.
Have you also stood outside Luxor Temple and marveled at this little piece of the Egyptian past? Or perhaps you are that armchair Egyptologist who simply loves this scene from a faraway place? I would love if you took a second to share what you find most appealing about this print?
Note: the temples at Luxor are part of a UNESCO designated World Heritage site.
Wonder what past print buyers think?
Just wanted to let you know, for Christmas, my sister got me a GIANT photo from you of the mountains and sheep in Connemara (Ireland).
It is really beautiful and I love it. Gotta have it matted and framed next.
I treated myself last year to two of your lovely works of art. The telephone box & the Scottish cottage on a country lane. Love them!
I just dropped it off at the framing shop on Friday and had a look at it… It’s absolutely beautiful.
I purchased it to replace a painting of Paris and to be honest the way that you have captured Dublin on the river at night makes it look more beautiful than Paris.
Beautiful photo, you are very talented.
The Lighting in this print is stunning! Thank you!
I got my print today, thank-you so much.
I love it!
DeAnn just called me so very excited, she received the picture. She thinks it’s just beautiful.
Thank you so much and I’m sure you will be hearing from her too.

I got my prints today! I had them done on wood and I love them! Mark was so kind to work with me on what I wanted!
I purchased this pair of Tisdale artwork (Dawn Divides and Contemplating Life) for a wedding gift. The couple are getting married this summer in a facility on the Chattahoochee in Roswell, GA. This pair of photos on canvas is going to mean so much to them. I could not be more pleased to give them as a gift to my son and new daughter-in-law.
Best part of my day = getting my prints in the mail!!!!!!!!! Yahoo!!!!!
Absolutely delighted! They are perfect!
Received my red phone box cards today. Thank you – they are lovely. Look forward to purchasing from you in the future.
Love it… the print arrived today and looks awesome!!
Now I just need to get a suitable frame and get it up where it can be enjoyed.
Originally I purchased these cards to give for Easter, but they are so beautiful I decided to frame and keep them for myself.
Mark Tisdale’s work is excellent.
The cards are very high quality. Images are sharp and colors are vibrant!
Received the print today! It’s gorgeous! I really can’t thank you enough.
I’ll frame it and hang it in my apartment in NYC as soon as I get back.
I took the photograph of the house to be framed and the young lady who helped me choose the mats and frame was so taken with the photography that she asked for your name so she could see more on the web.
If you hear from an Erica I want a commission!
Yes! I got my tractor print in the mail today, and I love it! It is beautiful. It is vibrant and ….perfect… and I am going to frame it and hang it asap! I love it. Thank you Mark! You are an amazing photographer.
My daughter sent me this print as an early Mother’s Day gift. It arrived today and I love, love love it!
It was my father’s birthday present. Thank you Mark. It brought back wonderful memories for him.
I gifted my father with this piece (Troy’s Snack Shack Print) and he loves it! He thought the man in the doorway was him.
…thanks to Facebook and finding Mark E Tisdale, a special print will become a memory in my parents’ home this Christmas…
I love my “Toomers Drugstore” and “Auburn Supper Club” prints from Mark. He does an amazing job and every painting has detail and awesome colors. His Auburn prints are a must have for fans that love Auburn as much as I do!
