That is SUCH an evocative photo. I could do without the dust though - no matter from whence it comes...
Yes, strange afternoon light. And at the same time fascinating.
Out of Africa... it is closer than we, or I, usually realise.
Still far enough; fortunately, we do not have to shut doors and windows like in southern Spain, where otherwise you find very fine red dust everywhere in your house when south wind blows, absolutely everywhere.
Nature showing its beauty :-)
