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 🙂
The view of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, UAE, as seen from the north side courtyard, with its impressive domes and uniquely golden spires on top of them. Tried a symmetrical photograph but didn’t quite come out in a straight line, though you can see a glass window straight ahead if you look closely.
A close up photo of one of the many magnificent chandeliers adorning the ceilings of the Sheikh Zayed grand mosque at Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This Chandelier brings out the contrast between the architecture of the strictly Islamic ways of the mosque building with that of the decorations itself.
