Mosque in May

Having recently returned to Autumn in Melbourne, I was more than happy to visit Abu Dhabi again in the heat & haze of May.

Sandstorms seemed to be more frequent, adding a veil of mystery to the heated days, and especially highlighting the white domes of Sheik Zayed's Grand Mosque. The white marble seemed further bleached & polished, a white on white effect against the haze of the summer skies. The detailing & carving on the marble is stunning, the blue tiles & palms contrasting & accentuating all the sumptuous details. Seeing the Mosque in this white light was spectacular, the soft haze seemed befitting for these sensual white marble domes..., if not as dramatic as dusk...

On this most recent visit we were unfortunatley unable to go inside, with changed visiting hours, so if you are planning a visit, the tourist hours are 9am to 12.00 Sat to Thurs. ( my earlier blog on the Mosque has the interior shots)
