Blue Mosque, grand bubble of masonry, one of the great and defining features of Istanbul's skyline, was constructed between 1609 and 1617. It is one of the finest examples of classical Ottoman architecture.
The abundant use of decorative tile represents the pinnacle of Iznik tile craftsmanship, evident in the rich yet subtle blues and greens in traditional Ottoman patterns of lilies, tulips, and carnations. The overall dominance of blue prompted the mosque's early visitors to label it the Blue Mosque, a name that sticks to this day.

This is a sensational photo. I could not ask for more! The colours, the perspective and the light are exquisite. The tight framing works so well and the white frame sets the colours and contrasts off beautifully. Congratulations, I adore this photo.
