Oman – on the Coast

With a chance to go back to the Middle East, and specifically Oman, I was looking forward to an opportunity to stretch my legs. A friend kindly offered to take me along the coast, giving me a rare chance to explore a little, from our base in Muscat. I only had my minimalist travel kit with me, which has been augmented with the new Formatt-Hitech Firecrest ND 16 filter, which I’ll discuss in more detail later. ¬†Our travels took us to dinner at the Shangri-La resort, where a wander along the strand brings you to this rather lovely headland, with an arch.

Al Jissah, Muscat, Oman


Set up close to the water, screw in the ND, and fire off a few shots. The ND16 – well, all I can say is I really, really like it!

More to come…..
