The intricate patterns and designs on the ceiling and inside the dome at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque, Abudhabi

Patterns on the Ceiling and Inside a Dome at the Sheikh Zayed Mosque

The view from the ground at the level of the ceiling and of the insides of a dome of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque at Abu Dhabi. Everything inside the brown circle is the dome. The intricate and minute designs and patterning of the dome and the ceiling stands out flattened down, in this technique I call “crane your neck and shoot ceilings” of “bottoms up” photography. Basically, you stand under the scene you want to photograph, tilt your camera and neck by 90 degrees and shoot “bottoms up”. Many times, the results can be quite spectacular 🙂
