Having just arrived back from Salalah in the south of Oman, I really couldn’t help looking over some of the shots and choosing one to blog straight away.
Salalah is a city in the Dhofar region in the south of Oman, close to the border with Yemen and during the northern summer months it experiences a very different kind of weather than the rest of the region. Because of the Indian Ocean monsoon season, it gets quite a lot of storms and rain, which makes the sea agitated and full of waves.
Taking full advantage of the cooler ocean were a lot of camels who really seemed to enjoy having the waves washing over their legs. It’s an unexpected site, as camels just don’t seem to belong by the ocean. It’s probably because as we grow up, we’re always told that camels are these mighty animals that survive for days in the desert, without the need for any water. Yet here they are, enjoying a day at the beach!
