Photography and Filming
For serious and casual photographers there are photo opportunities galore — stark majestic mountain ranges, serene sandy beaches, lush green jungles — all within a wink of a shutter. Wildlife, rustic villages, majestic forts, colourful natives … there is inspiration everywhere. Best months for photography are November –April in the early morning or late afternoon. Use of a UV and polarizing filter is recommended.
Note: While photography is permited throughout the Sultanate, and there is beautiful scenery everywhere, photography of government and military installations is not permited. Likewise photographers should be very circumspect when it comes to photographing women. It is not advisable to take pictures of women without requesting and obtaining permission before hand. This can be done by saying “Mumkin sura, min fadlak?” (May i take your picture please?).
