Interesting Photo of the Day: A Dazzling Iranian Mosque

At mid-morning, the Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque, a.k.a. the Pink Mosque, in Shiraz, Iran, fills with sunlight. The stained-glass windows pour a symmetrical stream of psychedelic colors onto the intricate carpeting, making this 126-year-old mosque perhaps more colorful than any other in the world:

The Nasir Al-Mulk Mosque is one of the most vibrant mosques in the world. (Via Imgur. Click for larger image.)

This photo was created by Mohammad Reza Domiri Ganji, a northern Iranian photographer who uses HDR and fisheye lenses to creatively skew Muslim architecture into dazzlingly twisted shapes and colors. He also dabbles in landscape and documentary shots–candid-like images of locals writing or weaving carpets in a factory.

If you liked this photo, you should check out Mohammad’s interactive 360-degree panorama of the Pink Mosque. It’s great to see strong creative output from lesser-seen parts of the world, and this is a perfect blend of modern technology and traditional culture.
