Speaking of dirt, last week Arizona experienced a Haboob. I know what your thinking, and you should be ashamed of yourself for thinking that! A haboob is a giganto dust storm!
My brother and I (being daredevils n’such) decided to stay outside and let haboob engulf us in its dustiness!
We went from being able to see the house at the end of the street, to not, in quite literally a matter of seconds. It was hardcore-intenseness!
What was really weird is the wind stopped. So what we were left with was a dust cloud just hangin’ around. It was really strange and creepy. It felt like we had been invaded by ALIENS. I went out and drove around in haboob. It was cool and very eery.
By the time my brother and I had made it inside, my camera had amassed a thin layer of dirt. Which is not a good thing! It’s not weather sealed! Opps. Oh well, the sensor needed cleaning anyways.
(BTW, most these photos were taken at ISO 3200-6400 hence the graininess)
So yup! That was the Phoenix Haboob!
