Once a year from June to early September the soil of the Dhofar mountain range in the south of Oman is transformed into a lush green landscape. This monsoon is known locally as the Khareef, and people and animals alike depend on its waters to survive. This image was taken at sunrise on a plateau in the Sarfayt area, about 1km from the Yemen border.
