That rusty earth tone gives the desert terrain its life. Beautiful contrasts, warm tones on the ground and cool tones on the sky.

BTW I looked up this cloud pattern and I think it's an altocumulus floccus. You can verify it from this chart here. It's one of the sites I refer daily when updating my sky diary.

@Paresh,
Thanks, yeah you can say like that too.

@K,
Thanks, this is Qantab Beach @ Muscat.

@MD
Yeah! Scorching sun is something unique in this part of the world. Hmmm.. Drinking more water always a good practice right? You can tell us more about it :)

Well, I took this snap while we tour Muscat sometimes back. I think Oman is a country you get more rain than the Dubai/UAE. Yep it rains here a lot. Especially in winter, sometimes heavy rains with thunderstorms as well. This year we got rain for continues 3 days even and like most of the times ended up with floods ..lol Even I thought I will not get to see rain here. But I was wrong =D

@Harumi
Thanks for the comment about the pic and thanks for the link as well. Cool I’ll check it leisurely :D
