I went to Oman in the middle of Summer. Yes, I knew it would be HOT! But, there was one unexpected element which almost ruined the trip. I went to Oman believing the humidity would be close to 0%, right? WRONG! It was extremely humid and I couldn't get enough showers as we rented a car to overland and camp, so no shower.
There were only two places were the temperature and humidity was tolerable. One of them in the Wahiba Sands (present image). The humidity here was as expected and I was able to walk around despite of temperatures beyond 40 degrees Celsius. Even the wind raising the sand into the air was tolerable.
The other place were things got tolerable will be my next post.
It must be quite dusty, even the air seem to be fill with the same red dust. When I was in the sand dune in morocco, it rained heavy the night before, the dune and sand was compressed, more like dirt than sand. Love the atmosphere and mood you captured.
Orange sand everywhere, as far as one can see and even the sky is orange. You found a lonely tree though and placed it perfectly to balance with the dune on the front. Oh my, I would not tolerate 40 °C even with low humidity.
Love the orange light probably containing a whole "sand dune" in it. Interesting the lonely tree, what a big survivor. Not much to nearly nothing seems to grow. Maybe it is the bit of humidity that goes down on the tree but not enough to make other trees grow beside it. It uses all the energy. Really great how we can see the sand swirling up in the foreground, small sand devils. Wonderful atmosphere.
