Blue Minarets

The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, more popularly known as the Blue Mosques, is one of those structures that I wanted to photography for hours and hours. Even then I would frequently find myself simply staring at it, or studying one small piece in detail, rather than taking pictures. I found it to be a structure that drew me to it, captured my attention, and wouldn't let go. Thankfully, the complex is open for most of the day, and I could go in at night to photography it from different angles without worry that I'd be in the way of worshipers or tourists. The mosque is simple yet detailed, delicate yet robust, all at the same time; it just depends on where you look. This image shows the main dome and four of six minarets.
