    Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque - Abu Dhabi

    I don't have Richard A's (rcarca) creative abilities, so these are pretty straight shots of the mosque... But, in my defence, I think that it's such an impressive structure it deserves some unadulterated attention. The facts and figures are just amazing. Rather than repeat them here, if you're interested there's a pretty-good write up on Wiki here...

    1. As soon as you arrive it's domes and more domes...



    2. ...along with minarets...



    3. ...and more minarets...



    4. ...and reflections...



    5. View from the South terrace...



    6. A few more domes...



    7. The world's third largest chandelier in the main prayer hall. 15 METERS in diameter!

    Thinks what Del-boy, Rodders & Granddad could have done with this :-)



    Thanks for looking; hope you enjoy...
    Cheers;
    Lee

    That is a very beautiful set Lee. The amazing architecture and good application of composition in your photography is sensitive to the grandeur of the subject make these shots exceptional...in my opinion at least.
