This is a remote village near Mughsail Beach in South of Oman (Dhofar region).
This region in Oman is a total gem. The beaches have soft white sand and spectacular cliffs and the best part is that they are almost untouched by people.
No high rise buildings, no resorts and very few travellers.

Very dramatic and stormy scene. I love the light breaking through in the disctance highlighting the hillside and the buildings.
Interesting image to look at, plenty to see here - nice capture.

Very nice view of the coast of Salalah. I like the simple but nice composition with the excentered mosque which is well detached on the background. The light was probably difficult to manage but you succeeded very well. Good work.
thanks for sharing!

VEry interesting place...Desert and sea next to each other. Your photo is really successful in reflecting different aspects of the scenery. Mountains, sea, fog, buildings and the mosque. Very well done...

Hi Bekim - excellent timing, these storms in the deserts display fantastic contrasts, the absence of people give it an "end of the world" atmosphere.

Fotoja Juaj eshte fantastike. Sa keni qendruar ne Oman? Une kam udhėtuar vetėm nė pjesėn veriore kėsaj radhe por shpresoj tė shkoj edhe nė Dhofar ndonjė ditė.
Ēdo tė mirė,

Spectacular view, Bekim, with a great POV and good contrast.
I like the "desert atmosphere" your photo shows.

A beautiful composition. Perhaps a contrast boost or a tad of USM would help punch it up a bit.

Hi Bekim, this is a beautiful photo. The soft mist and the absence of human figures add great atmosphere and drama to the picture. Great sharpness and detail too, well done!

This is a very beautiful foto, just as u described in your note. The stormy natural surroundings are captured as well as the mosque and the overall composition is nicely balanced.^.^

Nice shot for composition, and light; for me a very unusual view of this country.
