Oman_75, 887_11, Village, Wadi Tiwi, Oman.jpg
Wadi Tiwi, Oman, Arabian Peninsula, Middle East - Mountain village.  Satellite dishes link this village to a global communications network.  A loud speaker on the minaret shows that electricity facilitates the call to prayer.  Date palms in the foreground benefit from an irrigation system channeling water from mountain springs into this narrow mountain valley.  The mountain wall behind the village illustrates the arid climate and barren terrain where water does not reach.
