grand mosque of cordova, spain

i have been in granada, spain since sunday...flew here from venice...yesterday we took the bus to see the grand mosque of cordova which has  been chanced in to a christian church...what is remaining is so beautiful it brings tears to your eyes...how can anything so simple be so beautiful...rows and rows of red and white horseshoe arches..simple elegant beauty...




so simple but so elegant...repeat...repeat...repeat





the colour and shape just recede into the distance 



one angle after another...repeat the shape...quilting patterns all the way...inspiration here in this house of worship


i could have stood in is place and taken photos for hours as each time you took a step the angle of the arches changed and the view was different 




so many photos...this place was so calm and spiritual...wonderful feelings
