[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This place is nearly 60km from riyadh. What you are looking into is a desert river which will flow only for 8 to 15 days a year according to the amount of rain.

This picture is taken from a slight heightened place sitting on my 4 x 4

When I was at Eskan Village near Riyadh there was a giant 4x4 just visible just off the Highway. It was called King Karj. Was that your 4x4? Anyway Welcome to TN. About the photo, you could easily clone out the power lines and improve this shot. Desert shots are not easy as it is easy to overexpose a photo. You're exposure here seems to be right on. TFS

Hi Rajeev,
a nice picture from the desert with good deep.
The lines above is a bit distraction, maybe a lower POV(Point Of View) had solve it. And you can post bigger pictures up 800 px.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

Hi Rajeev,
Hearty welcome to TN!
I remember this picture well :-).
This is a fine spot in the vast sands of Saudi Arabia and makes me feel nostalgic.
One word of advice: When taking nature pictures, try not to have any indications of human activity within the frame, especially those electric wires.
I have done a workshop to improve the picture. Hope you will find it useful. And get CS2 :-).
Hope all is well.

Hi Rajeev, lovely view of splendid desert with wonderful colors, shame the power lines, but very well done, welcome on TN ciao Silvio
PS remember that you may post since 800 pixel:)

Interesante imagen que nos muestra un paisaje de tu desconocido País para mí. Buenos y reales colores. Los hilos eléctricos afean algo la toma

Un saludo Rajeev.

Hi Rajeev..
Welcome to T.N and many thanks for the feedback, always good to meet somebody new, I like this shot excellent detail with a good d.o.f the wires a distracting but I see RAM has already touched on that and produced a W/S, I would have left a little more sky in the w/s, but a great shot never the less, t.f.s All the best Cheers Rick :)
