Picture Perfect : Hajj – The Journey of a Lifetime

Moving images, striking panoramas, majestic mosques and minarets, special aerial images, intimate scenes of rapturous pilgrims – these are just a few rare close up moments of one of the Most important cities in the world, Makkah and Madinah. These pictures are recent (most from 1431 Hijri [2010]) and I believe these images will awaken the understanding of religion, brotherhood and of Hajj, the journey of a Lifetime.
