Photographer's Note

Return to the great Mosque of Muscat. I was undecided whether to post this photo which is difficult to understand, but it is a concentrate of what the interior of this building offers. Playing with lights and reflections, you can see the colored windows, the reflection of the large chandelier and part of the wall decorations, all stuck between the marble columns.
In 1992 Sultan Qaboos directed that his country should have a Grand Mosque. A competition for its design took place in 1993 and after a site was chosen at Bausher construction commenced in December 1994. Building work, which was undertaken by Carillion Alawi LLC,took six years and seven months. The interiors of the great Mosque in Muscat are truly exceptional.

GIOCANDO CON LUCI E RIFLESSI

Ritorno alla grande moschea di Muscat. Ero indeciso se postare questa foto che è di difficile comprensione, ma è un concentrato di quello che l'interno di questo edificio offre. Giocando con luci e riflessi, si possono vedere le finestre colorate, il riflesso del grande lampadario ed una parte delle decorazioni murarie, tutto incastrato tra le colonne di marmo.
