Blue Mosque at Twilight

Blue Mosque at Twilight

The great Blue Mosque as seen shortly after sunset, illuminated by the lights of the compound and the last remnants of twilight. As Spring was just arriving in the city, the flowers in the park near the Blue Mosque were out in bloom, which provided a nice foreground for this images. While it's not shown in this image, the water of the fountain changes color every thirty seconds or so, which was fun, and a bit mesmerizing, to watch. I thought the pink color was better than the other choices Visiting the Blue Mosque at this time of day was much more relaxing and peaceful, as the buses had long since returned their groups to hotels, and only a handful of people were enjoying the sights that evening.
