Photographer's Note

Nakhal Fort - There has been a fort at this site since before the arrival of Islam. The current fort has been around since the 17th century, with a few renovations since then. It protected the surrounding oasis, but today it is a museum.

For visitors to Oman, this should be a very good site to visit. It's only a little more than an hour from the capital Muscat. The museum is well kept and the view is just as good. A rental car is a good idea as fuel is cheap.

On the day I was there, the sun was exactly in zenith at solar noon, therefore few shadows here.
