SkyWatch: Minaret and Pretty Sky

It's impossible to estimate how many mosques there are in Jeddah.  Most are identifiable by their minarets and quite often a large dome.  Others are rather obscure but always recognizable by a small tower or rod sticking out with a crescent moon at the top.  This mosque is in Al Balad, the old original section of the Jeddah.  In this crowded part of the city, the mosque is surrounded by businesses and residential buildings.  I felt lucky that the sky that day was pretty. Many days are cloudless here in Jeddah.
