Mosque in the Mountains - Iraqi Kurdistan

in #photography7 years ago

I took this shot hang out the window of a moving Toyota Land Cruiser while driving through rural Kurdistan- near Soran. The bright white mosque really stood out against the black mountains. This mosque looked quite a bit more elaborate than most mosques in the area, which makes me wonder if this is a wealthier area than other areas nearby.


FujiFilm X-T1
Fujinon 35mm f/2 : f/2

I had to use a high ISO and fast shutter speed since I was moving.

Thanks! I’d love to visit Iran some day, politics are stopping that from happening for now though.

Great photo again, I love the colour and the saturation, makes it look like a painting. Top work!
