Istanbul Aya Sofya dome

As I indicated the central hall was not accessible, so I had to make due with some pictures taken from the sides, using wide angle or telephoto equipment, to give some impression of the domes. Here are some.

Nikon D70
1/6s f/6.3 at 24.0mm full exif

other sizes: small medium large original

No, I do not have them. Will have to wait until I visit again after the restoration has been finished.

hello, would you by any chance have complete pictures of the multiwinged formations at the 4 corners of the dome?. 2 of them are barely visible here. they are symbols of the 4 evangelists, each identified by the image in it's center, i.e. for John they drew a human face. I would love to see them if you have them.
