SkyWatch: Floating Mosque at Sundown


I’ve featured photos of this particular mosque before on this blog, but this is the first one I was able to take at sundown, and I rather liked the effect of the sun on the dome. You can see the Red Sea on the left. The Floating Mosque sits in a place jutting out into the Red Sea along the Corniche, and at high tide, it appears to be floating in the sea. If you look closely, you can also see the many speakers on the minaret that broadcast the calls to prayer.
To visit MORE friendly skies around the world, fly on over to SKYWATCH where you’ll find beautiful skies posted by bloggers all over the world.

    That’s a beautiful shot and I love the setting sun on the mosque. Almost looks like a light atop the structure.

  4. Beautiful shot! This is a great capture. The light seems just perfect and the position of the sun couldn’t be better.

    I am really taken by the street lamps, they are so delicate looking.
