It is a photograph of one of the magnificent crystal chandeliers in the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi, captured by setting my camera’s auto-timer and laying it on the floor of the prayer hall, pointing up at the ceiling.
Answering this week’s theme of ‘Lights’ for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge is this massive chandelier (note the scale of the human figures in the background) in Dubai Mall. I’m not sure it’s one of the fanciest I’ve ever seen, but it’s certainly one of the biggest.
The Sheikh Zayed (Grand) Mosque in Abu Dhabi is a strong competitor for one of the modern wonders of the world. There are many photographs from there that I could have included for this challenge, but I finally chose these three pictures of one of the many huge chandeliers in the main prayer room.
