This is fabulous! Just what the peak of photography is to me. Nature -- and the moment -- combining with the photographer's skill and timing to create art.
Thank you for sharing! #2670336

Excellent shot Sudheer. Where did you took this from? I lived in Muscat before. Ruwi is a nice place. #2670541

Thanks Fax, Nandu for your very encouraging comments!
The spot is Qantab Beach, near to Al Bustan Palace Hotel.
I walked up to the top of the hill next to the beach. The view from the top is so beautiful!
