Behind the mosque, you will find this white minaret or 'tower' in english. Its color is different from other mideast places which usually uses beige colors for their mosques or minarets.

I knew that it has pretty contrast against the bluest skies so i had to snap it.... hope you like it too..

Nice view Jowel - good use of the vertical format, good sharpness and you've coped with the extreme of shadow and sunlight very well.
The perspective with the wide angle lens leading to the minaret is good too.

Hi Jowel...
Beautiful view...
Beautiful architecture...
Nice perspective...

Very sharp, beautiful light, and good crop.



I really like this Jowel - all the geometric shapes and angles created by the buildings, the corners and the shadows. Really great work.

Good geometry and clean tones in this shot. Strong colours in the sky. Great to see this little glimpse of Oman, too, since we currently have two Omani students living with us.
Thanks for sharing!
