Light and dark

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque,  Muscat,  Oman,  December 2018

Photography is all about light.  You can take the same composition many times over, and will look different depending on the light – time of day, time of year, weather – all of these elements impact on the tone, colours and atmosphere of your image.

The Grand Mosque in Muscat provides a strong lesson in thinking about light. Its long straight corridors, multiple columns, intricate detail, shiny floors; its beauty inside and outside; all provide numerous ways to make an interesting image. The light provides warmth, colour and detail, the dark adds a sense of mystery.

  1. It looks very modern, though has motifs from traditional mosques. Do you know when it was built?
