Sufi dancing on clouds in Bursa, Turkey.

The photograph is showing a Sufi mystic dancing (whirling) on a rooftop. It was taken in front of a mountainous landscape and clouds of the sunset. The photograph is meant to convey peace, mysticism, and being one with our surroundings. The photo ultimately provides a glimpse into the heart of Middle Eastern culture: salaam (peace).
