shabwah

By yemtrav
This was taken early yesterday morning near my place of work in Shabwah province, Yemen. The clouds roll up the wadi from the Arabian sea and then burn off in a dusty haze later in the day.

The central highlands of Shabwah are normally dry and arid but rains arrive for a brief period during the monsoon season. The lone tree on the limestone slab is a Yemen Dragon Tree which bleeds a red sap when cut. This in now an endangered species due to overcutting (the sap is valued as a dye and for medicinal use).

We get this low coastal fog in California too. I like the rugged high view.

Wow, that is some view. As Patrick says, it reminds me of Northern California (although not the terrain). Thanks for sharing...
Cheers, Jon
