Photographer's Note

The Amir Chakhmaq Complex is a prominent structure in Yazd, Iran, noted for its symmetrical sunken alcoves. At night, the building is lit up after twilight hours after sunset with orange lighting in the arched alcoves which makes it a spectacle.

The stunning three-storey facade is one of the largest such structures in Iran. The rows of perfectly proportioned sunken alcoves are at their best and most photogenic in late afternoon, when the copper-coloured sunlight is captured within each alcove and the towering exterior appears to glow against the darkening sky.

I found the view of this square delightful and I spent there quite a lot of time. I couldn't decide in which light it looks the best, so here the collage with the same view at 15.30, 16.15 and at 18.30.
I hope you will like it.

What I did between the photos? I went to my hotel for the late lunch and then I admired sunset from the roof.

The roofs of Yazd . Notice some windtowers.
