Photographer's Note

The Friday Mosque (Masjid-i-Jami) in Herat was built around the year 1200. It has been restored to perfect condition in recent years. The decoration of the tiles is incredibly detailed and beautifully coloured. A photograph can hardly do it justice.

For this picture I did correct the verticals for perspective to some extent but left the minarets pointing inwards a little to maintain the impression of height.
