Photographer's Note

One of the most dramatic view I have ever seen...
In arabic, khor pretty much means "water trapped by land" and this one is one of the most beatiful form.
Climbing up the hill in Khasab through a boring, dry rocky road, and suddenly I was greeted by this view. Water here is crystal clear and you'd hardly see anyone else except goats. Best kept secret in Musandam!

Note: Khasab is a small town in Musandam, surrounded by dry hills,sea, and dramatic cliffs. Some call it the fjords of arabia. Very peaceful, quiet, with clear water and very pleasant weather in winter.
