I did not visit the Sahara Desert, though the title above may imply it. But parts of that ecosystem floated across the Atlantic Ocean in June of 2020 as a “dust storm.”
The minerals in the airborne particulate caused exceptional coloration as the sunlight passed through. My camera lens caught the splendid difference on June 25, before the effect, then as it flourished on June 26.
In truth, every day is distinct at this North Carolina seaside location. A quartet of photos in a slide show and a single panorama photo below captured a variety of early summer sunsets.
I hope to post sunRISE photos from June 27 that were also colored by the Saharan dust. Done, July 3! The link for: Sahara-Sunrise.
