The holy shrines of Imam al-Hussayn and of al-Abbas (peace be upon both of them) as well as the square between the Two Holy Shrines were distinguished by the beauty of their scenery, especially during and after the rains, and this is what drives dozens of photographers as well as the general visitors to race to take pictures of these moments that show the beauty of the Karbalai scene represented by the holy shrines and the square between them.
Haider Jassim Al-Manqoshi, one of the photographers working in the media department of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine, invested one of the moments of rains in Karbala, to come out to us with a beautiful photographic image that won the admiration of thousands of social media users and was spread widely, and when we asked him about the secret of this, he said:
"The most important thing that distinguishes the good photographer is the intuition as well as arriving at the appropriate time. After the rain was interrupted, I only had to observe the holy shrine of the Master Aba Al-Fadl Al-Abbas (peace be upon him) from a distance, until the scene was completely clear in front of me."
He added: "Not long ago, I have been trying to take an artistic picture, showing the largest possible area of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine reflected on the water, and praise be to God, this was achieved after I took the appropriate site using specific settings for night photography, and I could take this picture with the blessing of Qamar Bani Hashem (peace be upon him).
Al-Manqoushi said: "My first and last goal with this work is to convey the aesthetic of the al-Abbas's (p) holy shrine in this scene to everyone who was not lucky to be near the holy shrine to see the beauty of the reflection of the holy shrine on rainwater."
It should be noted that the photographer Haider Jasim Al-Manqoushi is one of the photographers of the Kafeel Center for Artistic Production and Live Broadcasting of the Media Department at the Holy Shrine, and who won many awards in various special competitions in the art of photography.
