Hi Marc: A well-deserved congratulations for this awesome image! In fact, this shot makes a fine selection for BetterPhoto's monthly "Where in the World?" quiz. It is featured in the new issue of BP's PhotoFlash newsletter!

So please don't give away the location, Marc - let's see if anyone can come up with the correct answer! In several days, I'll check back to see how things are going.

Again, Marc, congrats on your excellent photo. And, for everyone else, have fun guessing where this scene can be found!

Great picture of the Kubat Al-Sakhara (Dome of the Rock), located in Old East Jersusalem, Palestine.

Too bad they do not allow cameras inside. For those who have never visited this site, the interior is truly eye candy!

Hi Everyone: Thanks for taking part in BetterPhoto's "Where in the World?" quiz! Many of you gave the correct answer. Here's the word from Marc:

    "The picture was taken in the Old City of Jerusalem, on the Haram ash-Sharif/Temple Mount, looking north at the Dome of the Rock at about 7am on June 9, 2004."

So, thanks for taking part in BetterPhoto's "Where in the World?" quiz. And again, Marc, an awesome photo!
