After posting photos of an Orthodox church and Buddhists temple, I would like to post this photo of a Muslim mosque from the aul of Uchkulan, Karachayevskiy District of Karachay-Cherkessiya, where two rivers, Ullukam and Uchkulan merge together making the Kuban River.
When I was in Uchkulan two years ago, there was not this mosque yet. Now its construction is fully completed, only some landscape design around is needed. The mosque is situated in a park where some sculptures or empty pedestals of Soviet era remain. I believe that nicely shaped stones, which I saw on the Kuban River’s bank near the aul, could be used for making something like a rock garden around the new mosque.

A beautiful and bright mosque in that green mountainous environment.
It has the typical blue domes and tiles that also churches often have in Russia.
Best regards, Paul

I must confess,at first I thought you took this one in Greece.Similar architecture and these misleading blue domes.
But concerning the composition itself-it´s really excellent composed and framed by placing the Mosque slight off the center of the frame.And of course quality of the image is superb with excellent sharpness,clarity and fabulous,well-saturated colors.
Have a nice day

It is a well-chosen framing, in a slight low-angle shot that works very well graphically, and gives a nice perspective to the elegant architecture of this church. The light and the shades have a beautiful effect on the elements, and the colors are magnificent.

beautiful little mosque. I like the white blue colors. Nice location near the hill, which here provided a diagonal line enhancing the geometry of the composition.
Fantastic collection of temples of various religions.
Very well done!!

Very beautiful construction of the new mosque, a delicious combination of white walls and minarets, with that beautiful blue domes, projecting the soft blue of the sky, with that tone so peculiar, very good POV, with that group of firs near the mountain.
Very good brightness and sharpness in this beautiful sunny day.
Have a nice day.
