This place was meant to be a great beginning to something, an introduction to the Middle East, a first chapter, to what Im not quite sure yet.
To me the images show the wonder of a new country seen with fresh eyes. I had never seen desert quite like this.. the colors, pastel browns, creams and pinks. The dusty blue skies.
I manipulated these images in post quite a bit, I was in Oman for just over a month and had very little sleep and was under quite a bit of pressure there ( for reasons Id rather not discuss ) but I was the sharpest and the most on edge I have ever been in may life, and on a permanent caffeine high. I think the colors shown here, emulate that acid like, neurotic state of mind.
