Photographer's Note

The beach at Bir Ali taken from the top of a volcanic outcrop along the Gulf of Aden. Nothing special, just showing a side of Yemen not often photographed. Also the first photo on this site from Shabwah "state". The WS version is a zoomed out view. There is no "beach culture" out here, so the beach is deserted though the water is very swimmeable. There is a sandbar connected to an island at left, but so far I have not been able to successfully stitch digital images, so I will add that to WS as well. The walk to the top of this volcano would be suicidal in the summer months.
