Photographer's Note

In the wonderful Blue Mosque of Istanbul (Sultan Ahmet Camii), during a photographic walk at dusk, I tried to catch the slenderness of one of its minarets by means of this partial framing that emphasizes its uprightness in contrast with the beautiful curves of its domes, with the added value of the golden lighting and the fascinating still blue sky with some stars.

It was a great moment to immortalize, in a less classic photo.

(Wikipedia) The Blue Mosque or Mosque of the Sultan Ahmet (in Turk, Sultanahmet Camii) of Istanbul, is a work of Sedefhar Mehmet Aga, disciple of the architect Sinan. It is placed opposite to the Church of Holy Sofia, separated both by a beautiful garden space, and is the only one in Istanbul that possesses 6 minarets.
Its magnificent exterior is not unworthy to its sumptuous interior, in which a real symphony of the most beautiful blue mosaics of Iznik, they give to this space a very special atmosphere.

En la maravillosa Mezquita Azul de Estambul (Sultan Ahmet Camii), durante un paseo fotogrfico al anochecer, intent captar la esbeltez de uno de sus minaretes mediante este encuadre parcial que destaca su verticalidad en contraste con las bellas curvas de sus cpulas, con el valor aadido de la iluminacin dorada y el fascinante cielo todava azul con algunas estrellas.

Un gran momento para inmortalizar, en una foto menos clsica.

(Wikipedia) La Mezquita Azul o Mezquita del Sultn Ahmet (en turco, Sultanahmet Camii) de Estambul, es obra de Sedefhar Mehmet Ağa, discpulo del arquitecto Sinan. Est situada frente a la Iglesia de Santa Sofa, separadas ambas por un hermoso espacio ajardinado, y es la nica en Estambul que posee 6 alminares.
Su magnfico exterior no desmerece a su suntuoso interior, en el que una verdadera sinfona de bellsimos mosaicos azules de Iznik, dan a este espacio una atmsfera muy especial.
