Photographer's Note

My first digital stitch, assemled from 3 portrait format 22mm frames. View of Khor Najd from the dirt road leading to the khor(inlet). There are many steep calm inlets like this in Musandam peninsula, the area is nicknamed "Norway of Arabia" by locals. This "fjord" is the only one accessible by road. Of course these are not real fjords, which are carved by glaciers. Glaciers stand a snowball's chance in hell in this climate. Beyond the bay is the Strait of Hormuz, separating the Persian gulf from the Indian Ocean, and beyond it, Iran.
