Back doing what I love


One of the 90, five thousand year old tombs

Camp site around Wadi Dham

Chillin in BK

Bander Kayran

Cool rock formation

Rays over Wadi Dham

It been some time since I got back to Oman and I have been spending lots of time doing what I like, enjoying the outdoors. Since I got back 5 weeks ago I have been camping and trekking in the Wahiba desert, Jabal Shams, Wadi Deel, Wadi Dhum, Majlis Al Jin, the The 5 thousand years old Tombs and taking out the boat and enjoying Bander Khyran more than once.

I tried to go to Khor Garama near Sur but the spare engine on the boat could not be fixed, oh well I will have to plan it for another time. So far its been great

Beautiful shots. Where was that rock formation? It's pretty.

Re: development, I was so gutted to see the development in sifa. I wonder what hapened to the vilagers? THat's my favorite strech of beach, and so close to the city.

ColOman said...

The rock formation was around Wadi Dham on some little hill, I found it while trekking.

With regards to Sifa, Its not all bad, the villagers are getting new houses since many lost their houses to Gonu last year, they will also be getting jobs in the new project, I hope they do keep some space for people to use the beach and go campin though

Hey Hani,

I was trying to contact you and an artist like you should make it easier for others to reach.

I hope you will read this at once, I'm a student at Seneca college York university campus and would like to feature/display your photos of Oman at the international day.Will really need a written permission from you so please contact me back and we will take it from there.

I don't want to leave my email address here for the world to see but you left me with no other choice. Hope to hear from you soon.
