Photographer's Note

This is a part of The Persian Gulf. The Persian Gulf (Persian: خليج فارس khalīj-e-Fārs is located in the Southwest Asian region. The natural environment of the strategically important Persian Gulf is very rich with good fishing grounds, extensive coral reefs, and abundant pearl oysters, but its ecology has become increasingly under pressure from the heavy industrialisation and in particular the repeated major petroleum spillages associated with recent wars fought in the region and American atomic facilities in this region.
Countries with a coastline on the Persian Gulf are (clockwise, from the north): Iran (the larget), Oman, United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Qatar on a peninsula off the Saudi coast, Bahrain on an island, Kuwait and Iraq in the northwest. Various small Iranian islands lie within the Persian Gulf.
