Photographer's Note

I was thinking about showing the autumn trees in Warsaw park, but finally, the photo taken exactly one year ago in Sur, Oman. As you can see, it is not a touristy place. This is the third photo from there, one was mine.

Crowning a rocky eminence in the centre of town, this 300-year-old castle is built on a classic square plan with four round watchtowers. It was the most important part of the defensive system of Sur, a town that was greatly fortified to protect its illustrious overseas trade. A few traditional artefacts, such as pottery, Quran stands and carpets, help bring some of the rooms to life. You can't miss the castle, as its presence looms over the town centre.
Sur is the second wealthiest city in Oman, with a population of around 120,000 residents. Sur is the perfect place to sunbathe on the exotic beaches and indulge in some local delicacies.
In Workshop 1 - the outside view.
In Workshop 2 - something for Luciano :).
