Oman - October 13th, 2010

This image stretches across Yemen to eastern Oman (right) and southern Saudi Arabia (above). Most of the image is occupied by the sandy Rub’ al Khali desert, appearing various tones of tan and orange.

Upon opening the full image, many rows of high orange dunes can be discerned, particularly to the east. The land to the south of these orange dunes is mostly covered by a vast gravel desert plain.
