Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

From WordPress: “Grand. We’ve hosted a “Big” photo challenge in the past, but for this week’s challenge, we want you to consider not just the size of something, but also that special element: the “wow factor” of a scene or subject that makes a picture so stunning. That magical quality you’re always out looking for and so excited to capture with your camera…We want to see your interpretation of grand, from festive holiday city scenes to the Christmas tree in your living room to other shots that will make our jaws drop. We look forward to seeing your images!”

Well, “Grand” certainly brings Jamal Shams to mind as it’s known as “The Grand Canyon of Oman“, being the highest mountain range in Oman.ImageAt 3, 024 meters, it’s a long way down.jabal shams long way downHow about this scene from Bimmah Sinkhole Park?

  2. Great shots. I liked the first one with your feet in the shot. It made it interesting and really drew me in to see the others. It looks like an amazing place.

  3. Wow!! Fantastic!

  4. Beautiful shots, including the feet. But, I also learned something because I had to look up where Oman is because it is so ‘grand.’ Thanks for sharing.
