Abu Dome-ey

By ade_mcfade      
38 degrees, blinding sun and completely white surroundings... not a place for a northern Englishman with no shades, wearing black Wink

Actually had to close my eyes constantly - they were streaming in pain

The architecture here is amazing - a modern mosque made in the noughties, near the airport.... well worth a look

Ade -

It's ironic that the next post after this in the gallery is a shot of Selfridge's in Birmingham.

I know which of the two I would rather photograph - but, sadly, I can't get to your location in under an hour on the Number 51 bus...

Beautifully seen, and shot.

And V2 rocks completely!

I think I view that as some sort of in joke, and I like it.

Merry Christmas, and a happy, prosperous and creative New Year to you!

ha ha-I actually thought I'd screwed up on the shot at first, saw a cloning error, just before realising it was a logo edge!

V2 is 400Kb, V1 is 100Kb - spot the difference? Wink

Not on here... But EPZ resizes automatically, I believe...

Downloading and comparing, one is 370kb, and the other 210kb, as displayed.

You and I were there on the same day. I remember the heat and the black clothes I had to wear.
You have captured and processed this beautifully Ade.
