This is a crop from last winter's shot.
The mosque is quite close to my house but I hardly ever hear azan (ezan), call for prayer, unlike in Turkey, where I heard it five times a day.
The mosque is quite new. The construction began in 1990s and finished early 2000s. I think the fence was put up and the yard was arranged two or three years ago.
The mosque is not blue at all. It's made of grey brick. Looks pretty strange now that I spent so much time in Turkey.
Just occurred to me: a black frame would round up the picture… well, maybe I'll repost it later.

linda imagem, você criou uma bela composição aqui. os detalhes da grama congelada no primeiro plano geram uma surpresa que adiciona mais beleza às formas graciosas e grandiosas da mesquita ao fundo. excelente trabalho, parabéns
