the city of a thousand minaret by dpainter the city of a thousand minaret by dpainter
Nowhere in the Muslim world can you find such a profusion of domes and minarets as in Cairo. Rising from the haze of crowded, crumbling streets in the old, chaotic, yet picturesque medieval parts of the city, they dominate the city's skyline. Minarets, indeed, are Cairo's joy and ornament and the source of Cairenes' favorite nickname: "Madeenet el alf Midhana," "the city of a thousand minarets."

Please, edit the deviation comment, and ASK FOR A FULL VIEW!! People that like to see art as first impression are really missing an incredible piece, full of creativity and a really gifted person behind it. The design, is excellent. The blending, is excellent. The colours, are excellent. So, I don't have much to say, but to emphasize how much I like the sky reflected in the water.
:clap: amazing job indeed
