Dust Storm

Do visit My World Tuesday for posts from around the world



Kuwait has been experiencing dust storms continuously the past few days and the temperature in the desert has been rising to almost 50 deg C.

I’m posting here pictures of an unusually different kind of dust storm that had kicked up here some months before. Please note these photos are not photoshopped and uploaded as shot. The second picture of normal colors of a human face shows the contrast with the color of the dust storm.

According to Wikipedia:

“A dust storm or sandstorm is a meteorological phenomenon common in arid and semi-arid regions and arises when a gust front passes or when the wind force exceeds the threshold value where loose sand and dust are removed from the dry surface.”

I had shot the first photograph by sticking the cam out from my office window through a busy day at work. I hope you found this post interesting.
