Shoof Oman! #004

شوف (arabic) shoof: look! see! (english)

Oman is amazingly beautiful with a surprising diversity of terrain, flora and fauna.  There are also many beautiful buildings, old, new and refurbished; this minaret was snapped from the refurbished Nizwa Fort.  Please note that it’s paintwork has been remodelled since this was taken in 2008.

The Sultanate of Oman is a truly wonderful country, full of beautiful places to visit and interesting things to see.  Some tourists are content to spend their holidays within the confines of their luxurious Arabian styled 4 star hotels, and there is nothing wrong with that.  However if you get yourself out there you might find something unusual, quirky or bizarre to photograph and as a bonus, any Omanis you encounter will bowl you over with their kindness and hospitality.

I have traveled extensively throughout the Sultanate and not seen half of all there is to see. Will you follow me and شوف Oman?
