Sunset into a dust storm
The wind was high tonight at sunset when I took this shot of the setting sun as it descends through a dust storm over the Tohono O'odham town of Sells west of Kitt Peak. You can see the lighter color of the dust below the real horizon which is buried under the sun in the dust storm. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 200. I used the Gimp to stretch the levels a little and applied an unsharp mask before posting.
