IN PICTURES: A Saudi valley with majestic waterfalls pulls in photographers
Photographers in Saudi Arabia have been racing to capture photographs of the Rummah Valley, with a variety documenting aerial and ground images since waterfalls have begun forming in the area.
This rise in documenting the Rummah Valley specifically is considered the largest yet as it was not allowed for the past 11 years. The pictures have been shared on social media and media outlets.
Many photographers, like Abdullah al-Akshan, decided to snap pictures of the natural valley at night, where palm trees from the nearby town of Unaizah created the perfect setting for his photographs.
“I chose to document the valley at night with the aim of change and being different, many photographers took many day pictures of the valley, and I did not leave any part of this place undocumented,” Akshan told Al Arabiya English.
Akshan said he took these pictures at 2am and used the light from the moon to his advantage.
Another photographer, Rachid al-Baghiq, took several pictures of the valley where he traveled over 250 kilometers from Hail just to document the valley.
Many videos have surfaces of geographers and specialists providing information about the valley, as well as tracing the history of the famous landmark.
