Photographer's Note

from one long hot summer...

---

Bir Zikrit, sometimes also spelt 'Zhikrit' or 'Zekreet', is located on the eastern edge of Qatar.

Otherwise known as “Ras Abrouq,” it is a popular spot for weekend campers and those seeking desert solitude. Four-wheel drive is required to get there.

It's a kind of nature reserve with a quiet, shallow beach area, secluded from view by virtue of Zikrit’s dunes and rocky banks.

This picture was shows the only 'village' on this tiny peninsula. Actually, it was built as a movie set and is completely deserted, apart from a lonely caretaker who lives there. A bit spooky.

It was also very, very hot.
