One of my personal photography projects in the very beginning of intending to photography. I was at Al-Muzahimiyah, a small city belongs to Ar-Riyadh Providence located at 55 km South west of Riyadh the Capital. I went there two times in 2 years (2007 & 2008). I was exploring the city through my camera where it’s difficult to find photos for this small city during this time on the internet.
It was called by that name as there were many scattered palaces called Al-Muzahimiyah and caused congestion in the small cities and countries located in a valley called “Wadi Al-Batin” located at the western Area of Al-Muzahimiyah.
And there is another belief about the name, that there are some small mountains very near to each other located at the same Valley.
The Main Water Tower, one of the city landmarks.
Finally, I was trying to capture the rain drops in the empty spaces. I was lucky because it was raining during the summer. While the rain season takes place during the winter and the spring.
The Climate is almost like Riyadh with a lower temperature a little bit.
