Wadi in Oman

Passing a Camel I searched for a good spot to sleep

Oman’s beachs sometimes have huge numbers of sea birds, mainly Gulls and Terns. Here, on a beach I was driving past, large numbers of Gulls descend on fish scraps thrown away by fishermen .

This beach is long with the gulls concentrated where the fishing boats beach to offload their catch.

With so many birds I sometimes prefer the silence of Oman’s wadis to sleep in; so I drove through this wadi as the sun set – passing this camel who was in a bit of a rush to get somewhere. The night was nice and cool – and the bright full moon lit up the landscape till dawn.

  1. I’ve been following your blog for a while and I think that you make lots of nice posts, but I’m very irritated by the huge watermarks you have on your images. I am very interested in copyright issues and I would like to know why you personally use watermarks on your images? Is it because you do not want anyone to use your images? Is it because you do not want companies to use their images and make money out of them? Is it because you expect others to use the images but you want everyone to know that you are the source of these images?

have your say
