Stunning Locations - Oman

Another post in a series of occasional travel articles by Royal Photographic Society member, Justin Cliffe.

In this article he tells us about his visit to Oman where he photographed a scene which won him the RPS 2021 Travel Competition Silver Medal. The Medal was awarded to an event in a Market in Oman entitled “Business Negotiations Nizwa”: it depicts the “Negotiating Traders” but so much more. It captures brilliantly the expressions on the faces of the traders, shows the action, the situation and the location. The picture takes the viewer into Nizwa and tells the story so we can witness a decisive moment in this cattle market.
