The color green may come to mind when thinking of nature but for me a different shade comes to mind.
What color does a desert bring to mind? I would say a shade of brown. Sand changes color depending on the time of day. It can be gold or reddish depending on the temperature of the sun.
South of Muscat, lies a desert named Wahiba Sands. On a recent visit to Wahiba Sands in Oman, I noticed the sand changing color between the time we arrived from the time we departed. The site is beautiful and what intrigued me was that Bedouins still live in the desert. Some in old fashion tents and others in modern homes (these are the ones that upgraded).
My main interest however was the landscape and the camels.
Wait! I guess there is some green in the desert. The shrubs in the desert are green and adds contrast to the golden colors of Wahiba Sands Desert.
