Şehitlik-Moschee Berlin

The islamic cemetery in Berlin around this mosque is the oldest in Germany.


The photo here is my first replacement. I adjusted the angle and made the colours look brighter more than one year after uploading the orignal. - This photo is so far one of my most constant pictures on Explore/Interestingness. - Thanks a lot for you interest!

    It was on Explore?! Great! This is a beautiful shot!! I've never seen an Islamic cemetery. This one looks quite tall and huge unlike those I had seen formerly in the other parts of the world. I can't tell how big it is. Maybe it's a bit like Hagia Sophia in Istanbul..? Those two pointed roofs are interesting. I guess that's one of the characteristics of a Mosque?

    I like how the snow paved on the branches and on the gravestones.... Sad but beautiful.... I wonder what the color of the dome is? Not green? Can't tell from this shot...

    Thanks for sharing this. Cosmo.

    The artistic branches and the classical nuance reminds me of Pissarro's paintings. Beautiful!

    Thank you all for your visits, comments and nice words!

    This is in fact one of my most constant pictures on Explore/Interestingness here on Flickr. - It has been one of the very first images that I uploaded. In that time I tried out what Flickr is and how it could be useful for me. - After uploading the original camera photo I sometimes regretted the dimmed light of the shot and only some other little things. - While the atmosphere of the original image is great and full of details if you look at it in its full size, it does look, well, dimmed between lots of well adjusted images in the photo groups.

    I noticed that several muslims from all over the world took a look at this shot. And it may seem exotic to them, as it is perhaps here still around.

    I decided to reupload an softly edited version. - However: The original is still available:
    Şehitlik-Moschee Berlin You can watch it mid-size, full-size and original.

    The rights lay by me. But it is published under the same Creative Commons-License as this picture is.

    Thanks again for your visits!
