|Khasab, Oman |
Khasab the campers haven and ideal pleace for a getaway...the shot featured is that of one of the many mountain goats taken at 7.00 am. auto levels and colours cropped and sharpened in photoshop....
The small town of Khasab is situated on the northern tip of Oman's Musandem Peninsula, separated from the mainland by the United Arab Emirates. The striking scenery of this rarely visited peninsula is marked by dramatic mountain ranges. This region along the Strait of Hormuz is responsible for approximately 25 percent of the world's oil production. During the 16th century, the Portuguese settled here, leaving behind small fortresses, which were taken over by the Persians.
