Hills around Jabal Qarah
have amusing shapes, sizes and, of course, color.
Morning and evening provide best time for a
photographer to sketch this landscape.
Why some hills of Qarah
have an off-white color?
The composition of limestone
gives most part of the Qarah hills an off-white
color. Because, limestone is a sedimentary rock formed from the skeletons and shells of marine organisms that consists chiefly of calcium carbonate.
This leads us to an interesting fact that the area
was under the sea a few million years back.
