.. snapped some pictures while waiting for the saudi police to arrive in the vehicular accident i responded to the other day:
.. i found desert fox tracks in the sand.
.. a desert shrub.
clouds during sunset north of rub al khali desert.
just encountered a herd of camels in the desert as we were driving back to our rig site yesterday. too bad i wasn’t able to take good shots as they were about fifty of them or so.
lately, i have been seeing a number of different species of birds in here. i think the arab desert is not really a friendly place for them. i remembered last year, the birds just started dying – we found out that they were drinking from the chemical waste water behind the rig and getting poisoned. well, it was a sad sight. ta’ir is arab for bird.
pictures were taken using a sony cyber-shot dsc-h1, 5.1 mp camera.
