The dark night sky
so many stars wherever you see
peace and quiet around,
a time to reflect
So many stars wherever you see
that light up the night sky
in all its glory
Peace and quiet around
with miles and miles of desert
without a single soul around
A time to reflect
and introspect for everything
that has been and always will be

The sun rays are strong,
Water is a scarce resource

Being born as a farmer in a desert,
he knew what disappointment was like,
Everytime the clouds showed up,
the sun would win the battle,
But this time, as the clouds moved in and the breeze picked up,
he began praying more than ever before,
The sky hadn’t been this dark in a while,
and then began the thunder and lightening,
As the first drops of rain fell on the earth below,
he felt a certain sense of relief,
Within minutes, the rain started to come down in torrents,
something he had never ever seen in the desert in years.

This week’s Lens – Artists Photo Challenge looks at delicate colours. I have been living in a desert for the last couple of years and therefore it’s generally a delight whenever we get to see different colours specifically in the winter season when the temperatures are about 15 degrees celsius in the day.
Below are some of my clicks during our park and farm visits during the last few years.

In a continuation to my previous post on Wahiba Sands, I also wanted to mention about one of the mysteries I came across during my stay as well as watching the beautiful sunset and sunrise.
Since we had arrived around late afternoon, we set out to capture the sunset at about 5pm in the evening. With our cameras and smartphones in tow, we set out with Majid (our driver cum guide) in the Land Cruiser Prado to the vantage point which was to provide us the best view of the sunset.
