[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Red Sand and the pinnacle on the background, about 9 kms. from Dafirat Nisah in Riyadh,is one the places to see in the central region of Saudi Arabia. This region is mainly rocky plateau interspersed by small, sandy deserts and isolated mountain clumps. This is a new shot taken after I posted a similar photo 3 1/2 years back as a reply to David Gumprich (Refugee). Taken on a hazy day at 6:00 PM.

Very good view, but you should add some sky on this one to look even more beautiful, very good colors and light


Hi Alfredo,

This brings back good memories for me, I visited these sands several times during my years in KSA. THe pinnacle and escarpment are amazing spectacles.

Awesome POV used here, good control of lighting and good clarity. Well taken! Tfs.
