A winter sunset in a cold and bleak Erzurum last February. There are icicles hanging from the mosque at left. An unusual sight in the Middle East and North Africa, to see a mosque in snow, where most mosques are located in hot, arid desert regions.

Your capture of the sky here is very good, the colours make me think of some impressionistic painting. It is really very beautiful! The cityscape here is also very interesting and attractive, even if I don´t find snow very attractive at this time of the year. The composition is very good and well balanced.

L'étendue de cette partie de la ville donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise d evue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du minaret et des immeubles. Le couche r de soleil donne de belles couleurs au ciel. Bonne soirée.

Cette vision hivernale et plus rapprochée est très différente des vues précédentes et donne une autre idée de la ville.

we are certainly getting to know this place with your fascinating series of images. The cold here is palpable, but it looks like they cope a bit better than we do here in the UK. Love the sky in this one it gives the image atmosphere and character. Excellent!
Regards - Brian.

a mio parere in questa foto hai saputo molto ben sintetizzare le caratteristiche della città di Erzurum.
Magie di oriente - anche per la vicinanza con l'IRAN - e nello stesso tempo reminescenza occidentali per la modernità della Turchia rispetto ai paesi che la circondano. Uno scatto molto ben fatto in un ambiente gelido, che però non è inusuale nella città a seguito della sua notevole altitudine.
Ciao e buona serata

Marvelous shot of the snow and the mosque.This mosque has been built for the people from the cold region that is why it is an unusual sight I believe.I love the simplicity of your composition.Excellent composition, good presentation too. Very well done, TFS.
