Shoof Oman! #016

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

Oman is a geologist’s dream – this ancient land has many stunning rock formations worthy of a day trip or if you are really keen, an expedition.  Can you see a dinosaur head (or even Barney) here?  This photo was snapped in the Dhofar region, on my Perfect Square Circle Route; there are fossils near here too which is surprising as the area is 700-800 metres above sea level; clearly at one time the area was the seabed, but nowadays there is a good gatch track allowing easy motor access to a stark yet stunning area.

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 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?
