"No sir, we don't have any information on an approaching sandstorm..." While sitting on a sand dune waiting for a beautiful sunset in the Erg Chebbi desert, Morocco, suddenly the sky darkens as a sandstorm approaches. Minutes later we were caught in the middle of it. An overwhelming experience, giving us another sense of this place called desert! It certainly compensated for the loss of sunset.
Location: Erg Chebbi desert, Hassilabied, Morocco
