A picture taken by Omani photographer Haitham Al Farsi was featured this week on National Geographic’s website as its Photo of the Day. This isn’t the first time the work of the renowned Omani photographer has been picked by the international website for display.

His most recent photo, shows people shopping at the Nizwa market in Ad Dakhiliyah Governorate.

NatGeo captioned the photo: “Crates of pomegranates attract many sellers at a market in Nizwa, Oman. The local fruit is “highly prized,” says Your Shot photographer Haitham Al Farsi. He explains, “Efforts by the authorities and farmers to increase production are expected to keep the prices in check.”
