Entrance of the Semazens

By nonur  
This shows the entrance of the dervishes clad with their long sleeved black gowns which represent earth. (The photographers could not be avoided.)
Thank you all folks for the generous appreciation of my yesterday's image of whirling dervishes (semazens), I am astonished to receive those precious User Awards which were responded by personal messages.
