Musandam Or Bust! Panorama Me Baby! - #15


I love trying new photo techniques and this is one of my favourite results.

This is 9 shots blended to form a panorama. There are panaorama "stitching" programs available or photoshop can be used just as well... I will admit some help was given to me on putting this together, however the shots are all mine of course.

This is where I cheat a little, this is about 3 hours from Dubai in an Omani enclave called Musandam. It is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. Rugged and wild, it has been called the Norway of Arabia as it has cliffs plunging straight into the see a la ffyords. We saw dolphins and sharks, swam with tropical fish and had an amazing time... more shots of this stunning place will appear...

This panorama is at the top of the scariest steepest single track road you can imagine! But worth it - what a view. This was taken on a rare cloudy rainy day and it adds to the drama I think.

Wow .. beautiful! And the road looks like a white snake. Here in Norway we call it fjord. Very good photo!
