Sand getting whipped up off the dunes of the Liwa Desert.
I had climbed up this enormous dune after the sun went down and sat on the sand for a while on my own just soaking up the peace and quiet of the desert. Looking in this direction there’s nothing but sand and a couple of roads to cross the whole 500 miles to Riyadh.
As I sat there a breeze started, and soon the beginnings of a sandstorm. I quickly retreated, being sandblasted all the way. Sand was everywhere, so much had made it’s way into my pockets that my lens cap ground a circle into the screen of my phone!
