Photo taken in an unknown part of Morocco.

For quite some time I had been wanting to visit a Muslim country and I was told that Morocco was a good option. On our second day in the country we stopped along the road, and I forget the reason why we did? I was watching this guy working off in the distance on a very hot day, there were waves of heat that a person could visually see. All of a sudden he decided prayer time was calling so he turned around and got on his knees. At the same time I brought my camera up for a photo and just after I clicked the shutter I noticed a ray of light had descended on him. I was amazed to say the least and I can honestly say that I did not manipulate this photo.

I lived and worked in Turkey for seven years, and at prayer times the Muslim people would pray in the streets if they were not near the Mosque.
