Oggi trekking al Wadi Ghul.. un canyon spettacolare dalle parti di Jebel Shams formatosi per origine tettonica: altro non è che una profonda faglia sui calcari e le arenarie del plateau Saiq, sui 2000 metri.. ci siamo saliti con i nostri mega jeepponi e devo dire che è stata un'esperienza meravigliosa e molto emozionante... #trekking#oman#wadi#ghul#jebel#shams#jebelshams#saiq
We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.

The Milky Way, morning twilight, the crescent moon, and far city light of Al Hamra, above the so-called Grand Canyon of Oman, photographed from Jebel Shams, the highest mountain in the country, reaching 3000 meters high.
I’m on a lecturing trip in the Middle East and this weekend will be on Jebel Shams again for a session. Explore more of The World at Night photography @babaktafreshi.

Damn it, Oman is surprising me at every turn! When they said there's an Oman Grand Canyon, I was pretty skeptical but after driving up a mountain for a few hours and reached the top.. *mind blown*. It is so nice up here (and cool) that I decided to park my car and slept on Jebel Shams under the stars the second night! What a great decision to rent my own car!
Traded in the 105 Landcruiser for a 1.6lt Auto Nissan Sunny. This little buzz box made it up the 4x4 trail. Probably won't mention this to the car rental company! #oman#jebelshams#nissansunny#overlanding
