Mosque in the Mountains - Iraqi Kurdistan

in #photography5 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!

Hello. Great photo. I love it.

very good post and the picture is very clear I am very interested to see it @jrue

Sangat bagus foto ini, semua komposisi jelas terlihat, perpaduan efek yang bagus @jrue.

Beautiful picture.. this country would have developed more than it is if not because of terrorism that's happening in some parts of Iraq
