Phases of the Moon
Changing lights on the domes of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque as the phases of the Moon progress, Abu Dhabi, UAE. The Islamic religious calendar is based on the lunar cycle and the light architects took the moon as our source of inspiration. As the lunar cycle progresses the lights change accordingly. At new Moon the lights are at their deepest blue (1st photo) and at full Moon at their brightest (7th photo). Wisps of cloud moving across the domes have been added. Please visit also :
