Traveling Ratcliff Photo Circus Around The World!

Day 18 – Adventuring in the deserts and seas of Oman.

Wow, Oman is a secret treasure in the world!

Everyone was warm, kind, and inviting. The landscapes are like nothing I’ve ever seen, from curious canyons to sharp-ridged mountains, to huge epic mountain ranges, and everything in between. Parts are green and other parts are 150km of nonstop desert where it takes 6 days by camel to cross.

We did a ton of stuff just in our short time here… enjoy the video! 🙂

The girls walk through the massive desert — if you look in the middle, you can see a group of people about 5km away.

    The first time I discovered Trey Ratcliff was when I was living in Muscat and the first time I tried HDR was at the Grand Mosque. Can’t believe I am not there when you visited. So much more to photograph though. Did you get some of the opera house at night?

  • Not yet – next time though! 🙂
