Jordan

Some snapshots from Petra... Not as intricate as the rock cut temples at Ellora, India, but the scale of this site was awesome...

View from Jebel Sumaini

Here's one from this morning's hike across the border, just outside Buraimi. Rainclouds made for interesting light but a short stay on the summit. I haven't finished going through the photos from Salalah, Oman, and I just got back from Jordan so there's a backlog of pics to sort through. It'll take some time ....

On the Way to Job's Tomb

Felix Arabia Windows

One more from the town of Mirbat in Salalah, Oman.

Wadi Dhirbat

Very wet, very green, even in B&W.

Salalah, Eid '09 (cont)

Lucky to catch the wet season in the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula in Dhofar. Long, flat drive across gravel plains (see yesterday) ended in some great scenery. Mirbat had some great dilapidated frankincense-merchants mansions and carved doors.

Dunes II

A few more from the trip down to the Liwa oasis ... Those little black dots in the colour shot are camels, Blogspot.com won't let me put up anything bigger but if you click on the shot you [might] be able to make them out better.
More sand... This last one is of the salt-flats after sunset...
