Photographer's Note

The first photo of Sur on TE, taken inside 300 year old Sunaysilah Fort. I will add a photo of the mosque behind the tower to workshop. Oman is dotted with similar forts, mostly restored with disneyesque sterility. Sur itself is one of Oman's larger cities, and has a large fishing port, near the extreme southeastern edge of the Arabian peninsula.

EDIT: info on how touristy it gets, I had the fort all to myself, when I asked the gatekeeper if many people visit, he said "Yes, 2 people came yesterday."

from Wikipedia:
Şūr (Arabic: صور) is a capital city of Ash Sharqiyah, northeastern Oman, on the coast of the Gulf of Oman. It is located at around 22°34′0″N, 59°31′44″E.
