This was taken on a recent trip to Oman, an amazing country of expansive landscapes, beautiful people and a unique culture. We were driving through the coastal city of Sur when we saw these dhows resting on the water's edge in front of a gorgeous sunset - something we were often treated to on our visit there.

Sur is the boat building centre of Oman. Dhows, traditional wooden boats are still built by hand here. Visit Oman's Ministry of Information here to read more about this beautiful tradition.
