Made from the hill that excavation of the archæology site of Sumhuram is being carried out – first discovered by the Yorkshire born explorer James Theodore Bent when he visited the area between 1894 & 1895.
For his travels in the area, see the red line near Mirbat on the above map.

What an amazing landscape and your capture is wonderful. It almost has science-fiction landscape feel – otherworldly.
Yes Khor (Inlet in English) Rori has something special about it: no wonder it had been occupied way back in the 4th century BCE. The sea would have probably been somewhat closer and the area; although by no means devoid of life now, probably had trees and grass.
Amazing landscape photo!!! I truly love your/Oman´s landscapes. Wonderful photography!
Many thanks and I am pleased you like my small contribution to the wonders of Oman.
