Istanbul Continued. At the Blue Mosque

The Blue Mosque is one of the main tourist attractions in Istanbul. It gets its name from the blue Iznik tiles used in theThe Blue Mosque Istanbul construction of the roof. The Blue Mosque is sometimes referred to as the Sultan Ahmet Mosque and is one of only two Mosques in Turkey that have 6 minarets.

When I arrived here, I sat around in the main courtyard looking for a shot. The call to prayer had just begun and people were starting to go in. I was using a long telephoto lens at 300mm when I saw this scene. The lady didn’t look my way until the last second and it was then I took the picture. Within five minutes, the people disappeared and I was sat alone once again.
