Mosque Reflections

This was taken from a hotel (Movenpick) restaurant (The Waves) which is built out into the Red Sea. We had dinner at the open outdoor patio restaurant, and the gentle waves of the Red Sea were literally within inches of our table. Many families were there to eat and enjoy the cool breezes and the sounds of the waves. Most of the seating was Arabian style, with large deep cushions on wood framed couches. Throughout our meal, I could smell the flavored smoke from the hukkahs which were being enjoyed by plenty of the patrons, women included. We had finished eating and were walking back to the car, and I just thought the reflections in the water looked so beautiful, especially with the mosque lit up the way it was.
