Granite Outcroppings, Nafuth Ad Dehi, Saudi Arabia


About seven hours southeast of the Mecca Highway, in a section of the desert called the Nafuth Ad Dehi, the flat, dusty hardpan begins to erupt into towering outcroppings of granite. This is a view of the two that made the greatest impression on me.

Desert formations have the most amazing shapes!

Unfortunatelly I don't know any house for rent in Oeiras or surroundings... Plenty for sale but not for rent! I've made a quick search on the net and it wasn't worth it. But I'll keep my eyes open and I'll let you know in case I find any.
