I 'm sharing some skywatch photos of Istanbul. The imposing building shown below is one of the world's greatest cultural heritage. Hagia Sophia was a Byzantine church at one time, later it was converted to an Ottoman mosque and now a museum in Istanbul.
These shots were taken during early spring and and the beautiful sky provided a wonderful backdrop to the multiple domes and towering minarets.
I like to include electrical rail cables in my photos too, I find that they do a great job framing the sky.
It was a Byzantine church? Wow...must be wonderful inside of it huh! ;DReplyDelete
Beautiful skies with great astonishing building. :DReplyDelete
I like the second photo. :)ReplyDelete
Indeed, the blue sky is an excellent backdrop for the Hagia Sophia. :)
