As I positioned myself to capture this at the perfect angle, I was simply mesmerised by this spectacular sight. There were huge clouds above the magnificent marble monument. And, the Sun's rays filtered through them, upon the Sheikh Zayed mosque, as if saluting this iconic monument, a symbol of Sheikh Zayed's unique vision." Image Credit: Razia Khatoon/Gulf News reader
