Thank you Strucki, LM and Rafael ! The brownish background is a sand storm approaching. Not good for my poor sensor...

ciao, Marco

Erkan has it right, Marco plus I'd add it's a real photographer's shot, composed instinctively by eye - good work.


@mabut on March 31, 2009

Thanks a lot for your appreciation Graham! Actually it was exactly composed istinctively as you say, basically because the gusts of wind where becoming pretty strong.

ciao, Marco

Fantastic shot! What is in the foreground? At first I thought someone with a colorful headdress but now I am not sure.

Yellow star!


@mabut on April 9, 2009

Thanks Joyfotos ! The foregroud is a bunch of some kind of hay for the animals protected from the sandy wind by these clothes... but now that you tell me I can also see someone with an heddress.

Ciao, Marco
