Great composition and beautiful landscape. Greetings, Ron
Thank you very much, pleased you liked it.
wow. This looks so fragile.
Yes, some of them are very old.

Very nice composition, and what a treat to have two of them to line up like this. That looks like a wall on the horizon – is that a fort or a village (or both I suppose)?
Thanks, actually it is part of the Jebel Akhdar mountain range: I could not get into a position where it was below the horizon. Gave up in the end before I fell back down the hill I was perched on. I don’t think it detracts from the overall composition ..?
I dont think it detracts either, though a bit surprising it is not a wall.
Yes I can see what you mean when I try and look without previous knowledge: the rock in the foreground is very chocolate brown and the range is a medium grey so the minus blue filter has given it more emphasis I think.
Very nice perspective, and interesting objects.
Thank you Bente, pleased you liked it.
Are you able to enter these watchtowers, David? Perhaps they are unsafe.
Texture on texture. Beautiful.
Thanks and yes in a lot of cases you are; some of the more remote ones such as these, enter at ones own risk
Also, many needed a rope, which was pulled up after entry.
Are there many of this watchtowers? Great photo. Gives a sense of history.
Yes, they are rather synonymous with Oman: most villages will have at least one on a prominent hill.
Goes back to the days when thing were rather tribal and some what war like.
Thanks for the info. Again, I love your images. Keep up the great work.
