Our friends, travelers with the experience, made a difficult trekking trip around the island. The result was the remarkable photos taken in unusual places Socotra. The first part of the trip - coastline from Hadibo to the east of Socotra.
It is over five years ago, that my interest in the very isle Socotra was ignited and almost one year, since I first set foot on it. In the mean time, I explored Socotra and the concept «island», spent over seven weeks worth of shooting on the island, got countless fleabites, took almost 20 000 pictures, walked my feet sore more than once, ruined two lenses and almost my knees, and spent all my savings. Now, after endless months of editing, the writing of many thousand words of text, and production of four dummies and one exhibition, I am at the point that I can proudly say: Yes! I am there; I have a book that is worth standing in one shelf with other great and famous volumes.
There are several points where you can enjoy beautiful views of the lagoon Detwah.
On weekends we usually go with an overnight stay in the bay Shuab where you can catch fish and cook an excellent fish dinner.
Stero sand dunes are never the same. The last group spent a night between the dunes and managed to make nice pictures at sunset and dawn.
Shuab Bay to the west of Socotra - one of the cleanest and most beautiful places on the island. It is best to come here with an overnight stop to admire the sunset and sunrise.
Cape Erissel famous for its magnificent beach. Great photos can be done in the early morning.
