I wrote earlier that this magnificent mosque attracts a constant stream of local visitors, not just at prayer time but all through the day.
Many sit in the shade provided by the arched corridors that surround the mosque; just as many sit on the walls surrounding the promenade or make themselves comfortable near the shoreline where they watch the waves roll in. They tend to be subdued and respectful of both the man made wonders and the power and grandeur of nature that are evident before them.

a very good looking mosque indeed. Interesting in shape and textures. You presented it very well with those people in foreground. You achieved here an endless depth. Sharpness and clarity are just superb. Excellent shot. Tfs.

la bella luce mette bene in evidenza il tuo scatto, un'ottima composizione che unisce la splendida architettura al mare e alle persone che guardano il panorama in piccoli e colorati gruppi.

I visited this mosque two month earlier than you did. I agree that this is a man made wonder. But many moroccan people don't like it because of the extreme expenses the building took.

Obviously you were very fascinated by this mosque, but what I appreciate the most with your pictures of it is that in most of them you combine the grandeur of the architecture with the beauty of people and the colours they bring. To me architecture without life can be dull, just as life gets more interesting when seen in connection with something created by people, for people.These colours, by the way, are just fabulous.

what a great shot considering how bright that light must have been. You managed it beautifully. Excellent exposure, wonderful liveliness and color, perfect sharpness... So many fabulous lines and angles, details, colors - all caught so well in your vertical composition. I love, too, how straight the lines and the correctness of perspective. Really, really well done! Many thanks and kindest wishes,

That looks to me like the rocky lover's meeting place. It's also a mirror of traditions, which slowly are braking down. It is a great place with an excellent view of the sea and the mosque. Vibrant colour hues and high sharpness. Good photo job.
Laos a plastic paradise? No I would say there are plenty of nations in the so called first world, where plastic rules supreme. Often Asians are just following their example

The architecture of northern Africa is very attractive. I'm not sure I have a chance to visit this country. Your wonderful picture helps me to visualize Casablanca this famous city. Thanks for sharing.

Very good photo with great clarity and management of light, beautiful architecture of the mosque, the vertical format is well chosen
ourania (35890) 2013-08-06 13:09
this is a fabulous building and the more pictures I see of it the more I like it. It is splendid from a distant point of view but can offer amazing elegant and intimate pictures when you approach its details. In this photo I like very much how the perspectives join around the most impressive minaret. The colours are wonderful and the clarity remarkable. I love the matching tones on the beach and most of all the way the people emerge among the boulders. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

Great work also here Klaudio. Composition of the beautiful building is excellent. The light is really pleasant and so is the deep blue color of the sky.

Thanks for sharing,

I see you fell in love in this magnificent mosque. Also this view is beautiful, maybe i like this composition most of all. beautiful minaret, modern but still with traditional Moroccan features, nice including of locals. Excellent shot. Stunning colours and sharpness.

And so i have just learnt you had been to morocco last year, i don't know but i still get the 'flashes', fleeting images of most of the places i had been to, its been three months. you did a somewhat different route, the places i might do the next time hopefully.
i missed all of this in casa, since i touched casa for my flight and only to pick up souvenirs for family at the City Centre..
Lovely view this one with the perfect position of the minaret, what better way for the locals to kill time, i would imagine you too spent a moment with your wife out here just looking, watching..
