Nasir al-Mulk, a traditional mosque in Shiraz, Iran, is known as the Pink Mosque for the use of pink tiles throughout its interior. Your Shot member Miguel Quental came across a moment splashed with much more than pink in this early morning shot in the mosque. “I went early in the morning so I could capture the natural light in its splendor,” Quental writes. “When I got inside I knew that [it] was a very special place; the colors and the energy flowing can make anyone feel [at] peace.”
