New Road from Masirah to Salalah. David A Lockwood colour. 31/10/201328/11/2013 This is a new-ish road from the Masirah turn off on the Sinaw/Duqm road to the Nizwa/Salalah road. There was always a sand track that the Bedu used (precarious due to movement of sand covering the track) but recently made hard-top. Like this:Like Loading...

It looks like there must be a constant effort to keep the sand off the road, and without it, there would soon be dunes trailing over the hard surface all over the place.
I think that is exactly what they are going to find, I know a few tracks in this area that almost become indistinguishable from the surrounding sand given a little wind. Although Bedu and camels seem to have no trouble 🙂
Nice composition on both photos David.
I had an enjoyable week away from Muscat, although work and driving long distances……
Great use of forms!! First image reminds me of the roads you see in hazards section in driving tests 🙂
🙂 roads here can feel like a driving test every day !!!
