Sights that linger- Trip to the Baushar ruins, Oman and the Lady with the Lamp

Top post on, the community of Indian Bloggers

Sometime back, I'd decided that I would write about 'Sights that linger" and I did make an attempt, followed by another, but as it sometimes happens, 'Life got in the way'.

But this time around, I'm determined to stay with what I'd planned,  so here's a blog post about my trip to the Baushar ruins sometime back  

Sights that linger

Located diagonally opposite the Muscat Private hospital, these intriguing ruins are actually those of an old, abandoned fort which dates back to over 500 years ago. 

Arriving there just before sunset and leaving shortly after it, this time slot gave us the perfect opportunity to capture a mix and match of the mood , even more than the very real beauty of the location as such.
Old and beautiful

Wandering around, with our cameras in hand and for the lucky few who had remembered to bring a thermos of tea and cookies along, it was really easy to imagine all that had happened in the days of yore.

Could very well be the past

As I say in many of my blog posts, I will let my pictures do most of the talking, but what I will say is....
The Lady with the Lamp

I was really lucky to have got a few pictures of 'The Lady with the Lamp!'
