"The Blue Mosque Blues" Blue Mosque - Sultan Ahmed Mosque Tip by mrclay2000

  Blue Mosque and fountain reflections

Apart from the carpet dealers and simit vendors who swarm this place, the mosque itself is difficult to photograph. The orientation of the entire building and courtyards somewhat conforms to the layout of Old Stamboul, but while St Sophia better faces the golden sunrise, the Blue Mosque turns its silver back on the aurora.
