Jebal Shams Canyons (alt.3000m.) - Oman ....{by Bassam}

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

This area, often referred to as the Grand Canyon of Arabia, once supported dozens of remote mountain settlements. In the early 2000s however, the Oman Government moved all the inhabitants to less remote sites with easier access to modern services, leaving the villages to ghosts and foreign trampers.

Grandi spazi aperti che si aprono e si chiudono, una natura tormentosa... Complimenti per le tue foto, Bassam.
