Oman Adventure Febuary, 2011

I enjoyed my trip in February 2011 to Oman. The photo was taken in Muscat at the palace. The figure is Suleyman, our local guide. He is wearing a dishdasha which is the local costume.

He fits in well with the arches and colours of the passageway. I was with him at the head of the group and asked him to walk on as I had seen this wonderful photographic opportunity.

I managed just one picture before the group caught up and asked him to turn around. I tried to explain that this would create an inferior picture but they would not listen!

My highlight of the holiday was the goat market in Nizwa. Omani culture at its best. A very interesting place to visit.
