Calm Before The (Dust) Storm

Calm Before The (Dust) Storm

I say 'Calm' but, in fact, while a low sun was visible at the place I was standing to take this image, the wind was very strong and cold. And the dust storm was approaching quickly from both ahead and to my right.

Thirty minute hence, my car was engulfed by the storm while travelling towards Vik on Route 1 and the peaks in the distance couldn't be seen.

When contemplating this picture, I couldn't help but think off-world: a hostile, unforgiving Mars-like landscape.
