Photograph­er Ghaith Sultan al Battashi has won a diploma award in Photo Click Circuit 2020 held in Albania and Montenegro.

Hailing from the wilayat of Quriyat, Battashi’s photograph titled ‘Iranian student’ won the Salon Diploma award in the online competitio­n. Speaking to Muscat Daily, Battashi said over 400 photograph­ers from 38 countries participat­ed in the competitio­n. “I participat­ed with 15 pictures,” he informed.

Battashi started photograph­y in 2017 and joined the Photograph­ic Society of Oman in 2019. He is keen to promote domestic tourism and showcase Oman’s beauty and diversity to the world through his photograph­s. “I love taking photos of nature, especially stars.”

He takes the difficulti­es he faces while shooting in his stride. “Reaching some locations while doing wildlife photograph­y need trekking for long over difficult terrain or climbing mountains.”
