Default Sahara Dust in N. Texas

Took these this morning and thought I would share. Very interesting morning light from the RV here in N.Texas the past couple of days (and next few). Search ‘Sahara Dust Texas’ for more info. Just pointed the iPhone and shot. No post-processing.

No fun at all to fly in. Got back Tuesday morning, after going to southern CO, to see what was left of log cabin (less than nothing), and after 100,000 acres burnt, the visibility was better there than flying back home to Wichita Falls because of this stuff. At first thought it was some grass fires, only later did I learn about the Saharan Air Layer.
