These are bird towers which are commonly found in the middle east. They also serve as landmarks for prominent buildings or plazas. This one was located adjacent to the mosque at the new cultural village in Doha.

Interesting subject, well done

Hi Rolando - great subject!!! Beautiful blue sky against the towers. Nicely composed too. Good sharpness through the picture.

I'm off to Doha sometime soon for a photo-trip. Thanks for the ideas here.


Very interesting shot. Great to have some birds on the perches to give us a sense of scale. This caught my attention too, for its simplicity. My kind of shot! (Maybe a little more contrast though.... :)

Love this exceptional composition, Rolando!

Amazing view and perfect focus on these structures.
The contrast against the perfect blue sky is simply superb.
Great job!

Best wishes,

Good morning Rolando,

Beautiful pigeon houses, I've never seen it in the ground.
For me it's more built of wood!
This duet is beautifully composed.
Excellent shot.
Well done thank you for sharing.

Hi Rolando

Such an unusual building! So this is a birdtower. Never heard of them before. Good upward pov, superb sharpness & nice warm vs cold color contrasts. Tfs!
