This amazing photo by Rosita Dimitrova demonstrates “the power of chance in photography”. She calls the photo “4500 years of human history” thanks to an Egyptian pyramid dating back to the XXVI century BC.

“This photograph is not only visually stunning but also a testament to the power of timing and being in the right place at the right time. This particular image encapsulates the convergence of nature, human engineering, and celestial beauty in a truly awe-inspiring way,” says Dimitrova.

The photographer explained that a random picture taken on April 6, 2023, occurred at the end of her photo shoot, when she was about to pack up and leave. 

“I was pretty much done shooting that evening, as the Moon was already higher up over the pyramid than I wanted in my shot. That’s when lifted my head I saw a blinking light approaching the Moon — seconds away from that perfect shot. I was stunned at the possibility and almost froze in a tiny panic! Still, I did manage to press the remote button at the exact right time,” she says.

Bulgarian photographer Dimitrova is delighted with her composition and the combination of man-made and natural wonders that remind us of the timeless charm and mystery that surround these famous sights. 

Earlier we reported on how a 1.3-gigapixel photo of the Moon was created from 280 thousand images.
