Photographs from my photowalks within the City of Sohar and nearby communities in the Sultanate of Oman are posted here on a daily basis.
all the best to sohar rowing team!
lovely... hope they win.
Thanks Prem... i didn't have the time to see them perform in their practice but a friend of mine who stayed to watch them practice said that they were fast...so, i do hope they win.
R1, please tell us-- what are those strangely-shaped things that make up the barrier that faces the rowing team? I've never seen anything like them before. Fascinating.
Those strangely-shaped things are precast concrete blocks shaped like that so they can interlock with each other making them stable even when the waves are strong. The voids or empty spaces in between these blocks also serve to break the energy of the ocean wave. The barrier you are looking at (the one facing the rowing team is part of a long stretch of a barrier that forms a lagoon in front of the sohar fish market. The water here is calm most of the time, the stronger waves outside the barrier could not enter the lagoon area. I hope this helps Petrea...
Thank you for spending some of your precious time to see the photograph and to comment on my photo-blog too. Mashkur wagid!
