SkyWatch: Medina at Sunrise

My friend Anne traveled to Medina recently and took some gorgeous photos of the Prophet’s Mosque at sunrise. She gave me permission to post this one on my blog for SkyWatch. The mosque itself is spectacular, but at this time of day with dawn’s first light of daybreak and the glow of the lights, I just thought it was so exquisitely breathtaking that I wanted to share it with you. Medina is the second holiest city of the Islamic faith, the first being Mecca.
