Approaching sandstorm

Sandstorms occur every now and then in Southeastern Turkey. A southern wind carries rain clouds mixed with sand from the Sahara desert, giving the clouds, indeed the whole surroundings a yellowish appearance. The first rain also leaves a layer of sand.

Pictures were taken along the northern part of the Batman River and in the centre of the town of Sason, 2011.
