Rustaq was closed

The little town of Rustaq in Oman is a spooky place - made more so by the fact that when we were there on a Sunday afternoon, the place was closed, except for the Rustaq Fort which we were visiting.

Across the road, I saw an old Omani man walking past the closed shop doors and avoiding puddles from a recent rainfall.


  1. looks like a curfew-hit town. It's a great image: seems something like a photo-journalist would capture!

  2. Thanks!

    It felt like a curfew, and was so silent - it was spooky.
