Geographically, the Musandam peninsula juts into the Strait of Hormuz, the narrow entry into the Persian Gulf, from the Arabian Peninsula. The Musandam peninsula is a part of Oman, separated from the rest of the country by the United Arab Emirates. Its location gives Oman partial control, shared with Iran, of the strategic strait. The Musandam Peninsula has an area of 1,800 square kilometers (695 sq mi) and a population of 28,727 people.
The rugged coastline, with its numerous fjords, resembles the glacier-carved coasts of polar regions, only this region is much browner! These dhows are the traditional way of negotiating this region and this is also the way we went about our trip through this region...with lots of little islands and dolphins abounding, this is a beautiful part of the world.

Un excellent cadrage en diagonale de cette embarcation sous cette bonne lumière.

beautiful composition with well-chosen POV and absolutely stunning colors.I like also excellent contrast between warm colors of the boat and rock formations and the blue of the sky.In my opinion,the boats decaying on land looks always a little bit melancholic and adds charming mood to pictures.

Beautiful picture of this unique and colorful boat, I like the composition that marks a clear diagonale, beautiful contrast of colors with high brightness.
P/D. You ask me where I made the picture that you told me, I'll tell you it was from the tower of the church of San Ildefonso, open to the public as a looko

very good close and especially low point of view and the coloured boat making a fine contrast to the surroundings...and good geographical note, too!
Good work, Ivana

You made a true use of the wide angle here & very well indeed! The boat has been captured well with all the nice painted glory, leading our eyes right into the picture. The polarised blue sky creates a good contrast. Well done!
