Before the summer arrives here in Dubai I always try and take as many photographs as possible so I have enough shots to post throughout the slower summer months when the heat and humidity makes it difficult to go out and shoot new material. This summer I’m hoping things will be a bit different since in July I will be spending over 3 weeks travelling from Kathmandu to Moscow, via Lhasa, Beijing and Irkutsk which should give me more than enough blog material. However there are still 3 more weeks to go until my trip, so today I was looking through some of the shots I took in March in Musandam, in the north of Oman andÂ I found thisÂ image of a traditional fishing boat (dhow), washed up on the beach at low tide. I think it would have looked a lot better if I would have taken it with my 12-24mm lens, but I didn’t have it with me at the time, so 18mm will have to do.
On another note, I did a couple of cosmetic changes to the blog which now displays the latest 10 blog posts instead of the latest 3. Hopefuly this will make it easier to see some of the shots that you might have missed.Â I have alsoÂ added a link where you can vote for my blog in the 2009 photoblog awards.
