Taken from the top (I mean, seriously, like very tiny top ... borderline dizzyingly high) of one of the minarets at the Al Azhar Mosque in Old Cairo. As we set up (a bit surprised that we'd be allowed to climb so high) the Call to Prayer come on the speakers. That's normal ... except we were about 4 feet from the speakers at this point and thus it was so loud, and with such force that we were all stunned. The entire experience was completely surreal: the pinks and oranges going ablaze, the sheer height of it all, and the complete engulfment by the call to prayer.
Luckily I had two good friends and fellow photographer there to assure me it wasn't a dream. And this photo smile emoticon
Taken April of 2014.
