Singing Dunes - Qatar...

A few images of the 'Singing Dunes', located about an hours drive outside Doha... Apparently, when the wind is just right, the dunes generate a low, murmuring hum... Unfortunately their vocal-cords seemed to have been out of tune or sync on the day we visited, as the only remotely melodic sound I could hear was the distant growl of the highway... When we visited our 'team' of three SUV were the only ones there, but, as can be evidenced in some of the images below, we clearly hadn't been the only more recent visitors yo this regional landmark... I wonder what could be done to encourage people not to throw/ leave their trash behind at this, often all too rare, local visit-worthy natural phenomena..?
