Roundabouts of Al Ain #16

My Favorite Roundabout

It certainly isn't as spectacular as some of the others in town. I first saw this roundabout when I was driving around looking for a parking place so that I could take a picture of the Sheikh Mubarak R/A. It is just north of that roundabout (well, due north is probably more accurate, as it is a fair distance from it). It was love at first sight.

Admittedly it needs a new coat of paint very badly, but something about the design of this castle on a rocky mountaintop with water tumbling around it is just very striking to me.

I also think that some of it is the fact that it is so well hidden. The size and proportions also just seems right.
