Here we have a nocturne view of Mount of Temple with the Dome of Rock in evidence. This place has a meaning for muslins, jews and christians. It was here Abraham would kill her son to obey the orders of God, here Solomon created a rich temple for God, here Jesus put the vendors off the temple, here Mohammed was took to the sky.

Temos aqui uma vista noturna do Monte do Templo com O Domo da Rocha em evidência. Este local é sagrado para judeus, muçulmanos e cristãos. Foi aqui que Abraão estava prestes a matar seu filho para fazer a vontade de Deus, aqui que Salomão criou um rico templo para Deus, aqui que Jesus expulsou os vendilhões do templo, aqui que Maomé subiu aos céus.

Hello Jorge

A superb nocturnal shot of the Golden dome on the Rock. Security was tight when I was there and there were rostered times for entry of Jews and Muslims. I like the repetitive Islamic patterns and motifs on the mosque. Tfs!

Hi Jorge,
Superb view, a night shot perfectly managed, I like the golden tint of these lights very well captured, tfs.

Beautiful night view of the iconic temple. Good lights management, well taken.

Olá, Jorge!

Uma beleza de foto noturna com essas luzes douradas iluminando o muro e a cúpula, com muito boa nitidez! Belíssimo lugar, uma pena que seja palco de tantos conflitos...

Hello Jorge,

I like the enlightenment on the wall this is real nice to look at.
Truly colourfully and very sharp and clear.
A nice composition, excellent presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Best regards,

Hello Jorge,

A difficult night shot but one which is full of atmosphere.
I like how well you have composed the photograph and given just enough detail of the dome for us to really focus upon it and draw out the patterns and the 3D shape.
It does look much better full size than as a thumbnail; I wonder if some people have not bothered opening it!

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Jorge
Fascinating nocturnal image with the golden dome above the bronze coloured row of lights on the wall.
Lovely moody picture.
Well done

Hola Jorge
Belle nocturne, les éclairages donne de jolies teintes, belle coupole ce détachant du fond noir
belle journée

Hi Jorge
Not bad an attempt, the glowing dome grabs the eye as main interest leading us to the whole structures and there's sufficient clarity for the eye to settle. The fg interest giving the extra bit of depth to this decent night capture. Well done, Congrats
Best regards

Hello Jorge,

Marvelous night view of the golden dome. But I think it is the Temple of the Rock, not Al Aqsa. Was it possible to enter these both mosques? Fascinating place. And the view of Jerusalem from Olive Mount is one of the most impressive I have ever seen And I saw a lot).

Kind regrad s MAlgo

Hello Jorge,
This is a very nice nocturnal photo of the dome of the rock and the wall around it.
