Oman, A Pink Moon Rising


I consider it a stroke of good fortune that during my short visit to Oman I get to experience two of nature's spectacular feats.


OMAN 024This morning I witnessed a beautiful sunrise near Old Muscat.






Now with just a few hours before I leave, I am sitting on a beach watching the moon rise on a cloudless dark and clear night.

This turns out to be more than a normal occurrence. Not only is the moon full, it takes on an awesome and soothing shade of pink that I have never seen as it ascends into the night sky.

Thanks, Oman for allowing me to see and experience a part of your beauty.
