Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Minaret

The day we arrived in Istanbul was grey and wet. Our tour of Turkey was due to start the next day with a meeting of the tour group at the hotel in the evening. The weather for the beginning of the tour didn’t look promising, but the following morning was brilliantly clear for our “free day” before the tour.

Late in the afternoon we visited the famous  Sultanahmet Camii (Blue Mosque) just as the call to prayer was broadcast over Istanbul. From the courtyard of the mosque I captured this image of a minaret silhouetted by the late afternoon sun.
