Middle East - Oman - Lonely Tree in Misty Lush Greenness of Salalah Mountains during Khareef Season

Lush greenness and fog is the last thing one would expect in the Middle East, especially in the middle of summer when temperatures in Kuwait are reaching nearly 60C. Salalah in Oman however offers such a retrieve during Khareef season. The hills and plains are changed to a green oasis due to drizzle downfall and water springs gush in the wadis and in the fogy hills. When the sun light touches the grass, the green is brighter than anywhere I've seen. When I was driving on this particular road with lush green grass, mist that was sometimes so thick that you could not see 2-3 meters ahead, I felt I could have been in the north of Scotland or Norway. When I captured this shot, the wind was blowing really strong carrying the fog with it. This tree was continuously appearing and disappearing with wonderful backlit light.
