    Hi ringo, I must have missed you posting this. I have been admiring online photos of the Djenne Mosque for a number of years now, it is an amazing building. Must have been great to have seen it live as it were. Did you not take any snaps of the building itself?

    Yes loads. On my portable disk, not phone, but I'll dig some out.

    The cliff houses of the Dogon travelling from Mali to Burkina Faso were extraordinarily photogenic too.

    I'm no photographer and it wasn't an expensive camera, but the light and the subject lent any image great beauty.

    BTW I've only got pics of the outside of the Djenne mosque, no part of it allowed non-Muslims.

    And it is awesome to behold in real life. Astonishing and Unbelievably beautiful and impressive.

    Yes as I understand it a French magazine made a fashion shoot inside, of scantily clad women, and since then non muslims have been excluded. Shame. But understandable.

    Wow, that's pretty insulting.
    I went in 2005, I wasn't aware it was ever open to non-Muslims.

    I prefer the top as I like the canal reflection and curve, but I've had someone else say they feel their focus is taken away from the mill and prefer the second

    Either top or bottom, top has focus on the area you are taking the photo from as a way of contrasting/framing the misty background but the bottom totally envelopes you in the mist, just 2 different angles.

    Awesome! The journey from my now 11 year location to the place I still call home is straight down the north east coast of Scotland so see loads of oil rigs and that, I could take pictures of similar scenes all day honestly- I like the modren(sic) mixed with devastating natural views
