Mud Mosque, Bani, Burkina Faso

The village of Bani lies in the north of Burkina Faso, close to the border with Mali. It his home to the stunning architecture comprising several mud mosques scattered around the edge of the village. I was up at first light to watch the sun rising behind these remarkable structures on an unforgettable morning.
