    Today, I visited the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Abu Dhabi. It is a newmosque, built in 2010 to commemorate the life of Sheikh Zayed, who is buried in a mausoleum next to the mosque. The building is magnificent, but the best part was the wonderful and extremely diverse crowd of people and the relaxed environment. We arrived at 5pm, and stayed until well into the Blue Hour, so these photos capture the mosque at daylight, inside, and after dusk.

    I brought a tripod and never used it. Took all of these at base iso handheld. Sometimes you think you need another camera and it is times like these that remind you of the versatility of olympus m43 cameras.
