Sand dune in the Rub’ al Khali desert

    The passion to discover the unexplored..

    In the middle of the Jabal Al Akdhar desert in Oman on December 30, 2004. We stopped for an overnight rest in the middle of this vastness sleeping under a crystal clear sky - and while the sun was slowly setting with no sound but the wind, we saw a breathtaking display of colours...

      Invitation into a landscape or nature group of the Amazing Image group series.

      I selected your photo for inclusion in my Amazing Image project which consists of linked flickr groups. With this invitation you have the chance to contribute to the early phase of a project which might evolve into one of the most exiting places in flickr. Getting invited by an administrator is the only way to get your image into one of those groups.

      On the other hand all people are welcome as members even if they don´t have photos to contribute. Just click on the banner on top to get to the group page.I personally have just 5 or 10 photos among 8,000 that fit well into this group series in quality and popularity.

      This group series aims at inviting some of the most amazing images found on flickr to create amazing quality group pools concentrating on a narrow topic in each group.

      I know that your image is one of the most amazing that can be found on flickr and likely got a lot of attention and invitations already. I hope you don´t mind to accept just one more invitation.

      Some of the groups in the project:






      If you click on those banners you´ll see a large image view of the group if you select the large size in the tool.

      In contrast to a normal flickr group the administrator selection of all images in the Amazing Image group series makes sure that all the images in the group have almost the same high quality as the photos shown above.
