Dhows are the traditional wooden boats of Arabia. The front of this one was photographed in Saudi Arabia yesterday.
Beautiful detail in this shot Michael

The colors look like the desert. One forgets the dhow must be in water. Exquisite image.

@Lorraine: Many thanks, Lorraine. it's actually getting a little cool here in Saudi, about 24C during the day.
I like this angle a lot.

Excellent composition. Well weathered wood! I really like those textures. What does a dhow look like?

@Betty: It has a big triangular sail. thanks, Betty.
Anything to do with boats pleases me and I too, love your perspective.
I like this small image of the Arabian Dhow, showing the huge triangular sail.
When I 'Googled' for an image of the Dyer, I was amazed to find my own photo. Back in the 70's & 80's, we towed a Dyer Dhow (9-foot dinghy) behind our sailboat and sailed it in club races at various harbors and anchorages. ... Thanks for the memories, Michael.

Neat perspective, and terrific processing. The sense of motion in those branches hints at a tropical storm, which adds interest to the wonderful scene. A terrific photograph

It smells voyage, wood, warm weather, like the colour and composition...

It almost feels like being on the boat, because of the blowing palm trees in the background. The colours are very nice also. Soft and gentle.
9 Nov 2008 12:27pm
Wow really nice one! Love the colors in this photo and the angle you shot it at makes it even better!
