Oman has a hot, dry climate with fewer rainfalls and therefore the desert style of flora can be found here. Desert shrubs, desert grass, and Date Palms are found everywhere in this country. Dolphins and turtles are found in blue waters of Oman with other species of fish. Goats /sheep are the most common animals which you can find everywhere and even crossing the roads while driving.

As the whole country is having rugged mountains some of the clusters of houses or towns are located on zig-zag mountain base. It is like Santorini of the Middle East.

Thanks for liking the photos. I love photography
A trip to Oman is so high on my bucket list and these pictures are making me want to jump of the first flight! I particularly like the fact that there’s such a varied landscape, from mountains to desert and sumptuous palaces! Also, being a lover of old and traditional doors, I’m pleased to read that I could take hundreds of pictures on this subject there 🙂
Thanks Val, and you would surely enjoy Oman trip as it is very photogenic.
I don’t think I would have ever considered Oman as a vacation spot until reading your post and seeing your a-freaking mazing pictures! Wow! The beaches are pristine, the architecture exquisite, and the drive looks like so much fun! Thanks for sharing. Definitely on my radar.
Thanks for reading and loving this post
Wow!! Oman is so beautiful!! I had no idea! Love the blue water next to the red rocks. And those buildings are exquisite! You really got some wonderful photos.
Yes, water of Oman is really blue.
Your visit looks great! I love the views of the landscape and your encounters with local (domestic and) wildlife. The entire trip seems to have been very exciting!
I have never really thought about Oman as a travel destination. And, come to think of it, I’m not sure I’ve ever really seen photos of it. But wow did you capture its beauty in this post! ~ Sage Scott, the Everyday Wanderer
Oman is a destination I have wanted to visit for some time. Love your photo of the sinkhole and the photos of the mosques. I have heard that the Oman coast was beautiful, but your photos confirmed it.
I loved all your categories of photos so it’s hard to pick a favorite. I think one of the photos that stood out to me the most was the Bimmah Sinkhole. It’s mesmerizing and just so beautiful. Both the scenery and your photos are gorgeous.
Thanks Candy for reading through
See this is why I need posts like this. Even though I knew geographically speaking that Oman had a coastline, I rarely ever imagine beaches and a beautiful seaside there. The Bimmah Sinkhole is simply stunning!
Thanks Rachelle and I too was not knowing that Oman has such a beautiful coast line before visiting this place. The waters of Omani seas are having amazing deep blue colors
Nice pictures Yukti. I absolutely love Khasab’s fjords, I’ve been there several times myself and end up taking so many pictures every time I go. Also, Muscat’s beaches are gorgeous, I love the blue waters. Nizwa Fort is quite iconic too, and the pots and pans market in Nizwa is another fav for taking pictures. Bimmah Sinkhole, however, is my favourite! I absolutely love that place. And Jebel Shams too!
Thanks Medha for reading through, I agree Oman has many photogenic places, it just need to be explored.
Have always wanted to visit Oman and your photos just made me convinced that much more!! Beautiful photographs, and I especially liked how you didn’t just stop at nature photos but also have taken cultural, flora and fauna and architecture photos. It really is a comprehensive view of life at Oman. Thank you for sharing 🙂
Thanks Mohana and yes, I love to take various photos apart from architecture because it gives true glimpse of whole country.
What a beautiful destination!! The date palms are beautiful. For us, we always know we’re on vacation when we see palm trees. Date palms are new to me though. Swimming in the colourful Bimmah Sinkhole looks wonderful. I love the architecture and the souks. It’s like nothing we’ve ever experienced before which makes it all the more lovely.
Oman looks like a gorgeous place for a photo tour! There is such gorgeous stunning architecture – the mosques and especially the opera house. I didn’t think about the beaches until I read this post, those beaches look pretty spectacular too. There are so many beautiful lines and textures to photograph in Oman. Gorgeous.
Thanks Juliette, beaches of Oman are really wonderful and whole country is very photogenic
I love photo tours of destinations. It gives me an idea of the personality of the place and what all I would want to see. Oman has recently come onto my radar. It is quite diverse in topography it seems! Most on your list I would want to see the fjords, the sinkhole (wow that color!) and the mosques. I find them so beautiful!
Yes the nature tour of Oman is wonderful with those blue colored fjords and emerald sinkhole.
Oman looks so beautiful. Not just the rustic feel of nature but the architecture of the mosque and fort really make me want to plan a trip there right away. Your post took me on a virtual tour and I would save this post to plan my trip there.
Thanks Puja, yes you said it rightly, Oman gives a rustic feel.
I’ve recently visited the Middle East and am now intrigued to see more places like Oman. Your post showed a great variety of landscapes and I didn’t know there were fjords in Oman! Your photos were beautiful and hopefully will convince more people to plan a trip.
Thanks Laura for reading through and yes before visiting Oman, I was also not knowing that there are fjords
I have not visited Oman yet but do have it on my list to visit places and there are s few reasons for this. Your photo tour only wants me to get there sooner and soak in all this new budding tourist destination has on offer for the world. There is natural beauty in those mountains and I am quite a fan of Middle Eastern cuisine so that’s another tick. One of my go to place would be the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque for the grandeur and peaceful aspect it carries I must say. Overall a photographers paradise and you have captured it really well. Thanks for sharing Oman with the world
Thanks Amar for all appreciation. Oman is really beautiful but not known to many people as a tourist destination.
Such beautiful photographs! I had heard about the beauty of Oman, and now I know that it is so true. There is such diversity in landscape, the architectures are also so wonderful. after seeing these pictures, I realy want to make a visit to Oman now!
Yes Amrita, Oman is diverse with many natural and architectural wonders.
Some of these pictures are absolutely stunning! I have never visited Oman but you’re making me want to pack and go there right now! I never knew Oman has so much to offer. Thank you for sharing this lovely article and these beautiful pictures
Thanks Daniel for loving all the photo shots
I have always felt that Oman is an underrated destination as compared to places like Dubai and Sharjah. But these pictures burst the myth. The varied natural landscapes that Oman is blessed are really stunning. The architectural treasures too are of course exquisite. Your pictures have captured the best of Oman in vivid detail.
Thanks Sandy, I too agree before going to Oman, I also thought to be non-touristy part but after visiting it twice, I am interested to go again and again
That’s such a treat to eyes. The photos are really enthralling, I did not know much about Oman before, but looking at your pictures, I think I would like to visit it soon. My favorite is the flora and fauna section.
Thanks Shreya, Oman is very picturesque and sometimes flora and fauna of desert are also interesting though it is found very less.
Just beautiful! I have been wanting to visit Oman for such a long time now. I love that shot of the Nizwa Fort and the mud coated houses.
Thanks Bianca, I agree fort and mud houses are unique feature of Oman
