Haboob!

On August 4, 2012 a dust storm moved over our house. I finally got the photos ready using ”animation” in Photoshop,  a professional photographer friend, and Youtube instructions! Double-click the picture to see it full screen. There are some jpeg artifacts in the image because I had to compress it so much to make it manageable (on my screen, they are sortof circular rainbow-like things in the dust cloud).

The haboob (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/haboob) seemed very slow-moving as it came across San Domingo Wash heading Northwest toward us. This sequence of pictures took 3 minutes and 20 seconds to happen in real life.
