This is the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Masjid in Cotabato City, Philippines. Also known as the Golden Mosque, it is considered to be a masterpiece of Islamic architecture. Viewed from above (when I was in the plane), I was already in awe of this magnificent architecture and wonderful place of worship. The mosque is located in Barangay Kalanganan in Cotabato City, and was funded by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah of Brunei Darussalam.

una delle tue più belle fotografie nella quale non manca nulla: un bel soggetto, una composizione molto ben fatta, colori favolosi per la particolare contrapposizione dei gialli con il grigio-azzurro del cielo in un ambiente domninato dal bianco dell'edificio.
Anche le nuvole ci stanno molto bene e danno un senso di mistero e permettono di avere una luce diffusa che è quella ideale per questo soggetto.
Bravissima. I miei complimenti.
Ciao e buona serata

bella moschea, c'è un bel contrasto tra il colore dei muri e quello delle cupole.
Peccato che non hai avuto la fortuna di avere una bella luce, il risultato ne avrebbe guadagnato.

excellent presentation of this beautiful and impressive architecture.
The golden domes contrast so nicely to the sky and makes the composition so eye-catching and expressive.

This is a wonderful image of this most beautiful building. The golden domes with the crescents against that dramatic blue sky looking wonderful, and the minarets reach into the sky like something from a fairytale, giving a brilliant sense of height and size to the place. Lovely scene and capture, thanks for sharing.
P.S. Thank you for visiting my gallery :)
