In central Saudi Arabia, the area of west Umm al-Jamajm has been the focus of tourists these days. Many breathtaking scenes are being captured in the cameras. A very rare scene that was taken in the aerial photographs shows the scenes of floating boats in the middle of the desert.
After heavy rainfall, in the Ad-Dhana Desert which is in the arid region, many boats were seen floating in it which is one of the infrequent scenes that have been captured in the cameras anywhere. All the beauty and the rainfall have played its role in turning this area into a tourist destination.
The photographer Thamer AlThumairy used the drone so that he can show the entire area and the scene from the aerial vantage point. He has made these unique photos of boats near the Riyadh province of al-Majmaah.
Thamer AlThumairy mentioned in his interview with Al Arabiya English that the rainy season is regarded as one of the most important seasons for the photographers.
The rains in the area create beautiful landscapes and enhance the natural beauty of the things so the photographers have a wealth of landscapes to shot.
He mentioned that he has tried to photograph the desert after the heavy rains to reflect the true beauty of the sites through the artistic lens.
AlThumairy has been engaged in the photography for the last 15 years. He won the first prize in a recent event which was a competition arranged by the Saudi Commission for Tourism & National Heritage named “My Saudi Holiday”.
Many geographers have marked the ad-Dhana Desert as the boundary between the regions of Najd and Al-Ahsa. The desert consists of many longitudinally extended high sand dunes which are called “Arwa”. This is the point where they collide with the valley of Najd.
This desert has a very certain red color because it is enriched in iron oxide. It shares this characteristic with the desert of Al-Nafud. It is located at around 90km away from the Saudi capital of Riyadh about 150 km from the city of al-Hofuf.
Natural beauty and landscapes always have a certain type of attraction in it and tourist love to explore places like these which are not usual.
Having a chance to view boats floating in the desert is indeed a pleasure to watch so it is a good opportunity these days for tourist to go for it and enjoy the spectacular scenes of nature.
