This picture is of a tower forming part of the walls of the old Citadel of Cairo. I was drawn to the shadows and detail of the light coloured stone.
Inside the walls of the Citadel is the main Mohummed Ali Mosque, another smaller mosque and several museums. The Citadel is built on a rocky outcrop and gives good views over the city.

Nice POV, the shadows and details are what attracted me to this picture, in combination with the blue sky, the palm tree and the nice curvature of the tower. Well seen and captured.
Have a nice weekend,
