Ship Wrecked

As I was exploring a newly opened Souq in Doha around Sunrise, I came across this breath taking scene. These boats or "Dhows" as they are called in Arabic were traditionally used to hunt for Pearls. Qatar has a very rich history of Pearl Mining and before the discovery of Oil and Gas the country depended on the income through Precious Pearls.
