Photographer's Note

This is the Vakil Mosque in Shiraz . A very peaceful place ,far from the fuss & fusion of the city .The dance of light through the arches is really glorious.The Mosque was built during the Zand Dynasty which was a very short period in the Iranian history.
Karim Khan Zand (the Founder of the dynasty), based in Shīrāz, established a brief period of tranquility in the mid-1700s but was not able to extend his control over all of Iran.
hope you like it
