Oman in Photos

February 6, 2012

I’m composing a post about a truly amazing weekend I spent in the Western Hajar mountains of Oman.

In the meantime, I couldn’t wait to share photos. My camera is broken at the moment so these are courtesy of my friend Peter. Check out his amazing photo-stitching skills with some of the panoramics below. 

Traveling without a camera was actually incredibly freeing. But now that I’m back in the UAE dreaming of the desert, I’m glad everyone else had one.

Amazing panoramic of Balad Sayt, a village built in an oasis valley between two mountains:

This canyon was nothing compared to Snake Canyon, which we faced later in the day. But it was gorgeous nonetheless: IMG_7711

    This looks so amazing and fun! Hope to go one day. I also have a question for you: how did you create the watermarks on your photos? Must discuss! miss you.

    In windows livewriter, click your picture, then click the tab to “format” and you can choose your watermark. I only thought of it when you tweeted Sharell, and then wanted to give credit to Peter…figured it was time to try out the watermarks!
    Miss you too!
