More Autumn Sunrise over the Omdurman

Last week I posted a very similar photograph to the one above. That one was taken from the roof of our apartment, (second storey) while this one was take from the first floor balcony of the flat.  I just LOVE how the sun cuts through the railings in the foreground

The Arabic word for roof is Sqf (pronounced segeeff) and the Arabic word for balcony is Shrfh (pronounced shirrfah)
