The Saharan dust arrived in Portugal yesterday, and is still here. The air quality isn’t great, but it is having a fascinating effect on the photography!

  1. Stunning photo, Becky. I hope you’re not feeling any bad breathing effects from that dust storm. Stay safe, stay indoors until it passes?

  2. Scanning the comments it appears whatever I’d say about your photo would be redundant. πŸ™‚ We have lots of dust here in Arizona but so far in the 2 years we’ve been here, we’ve escaped the terrible dust storms I’ve seen pictures of, when the entire sky is dark higher than any skyscraper and the instructions if driving are to pull over as far of the road as possible, turn off your lights, set the parking brake and keep your foot off the brake pedal, stay in the vehicle. Here’s a video of one: https://azdot.gov/adot-news/drivers-do-you-know-what-do-when-confronted-dust-storm. I’d be happy to not ever experience one but I’m sure my time will come.
