Al Aksa Mosque (Jerusalem)

036 037 038

The Al-Aksa Mosque is actually the holier of the two mosques on the Temple Mount-Noble Sanctuary. I like the way these shots came out, framed by the minaret. As always, the closer the shot, the better the picture, more abstract. I understand the politics of the place, but sometimes it’s preferable to take just a close look out of context.
