Windy and dusty…

Qatar experiences strong dust winds over the past three days (may continue until the next two days). Reduced visibility, dusty surfaces, and strong wind as a result, are not unusual for desert country Qatar.

Amidst busy events, we re-consider some planned activities outside for fear it may impact our respiratory health.

Hope the strong dust wind get calmer soon….

  1. Hi, I’m always fascinated by your photos. It’s really more of a journalistic style. What camera do you use? dSLR or Compact one? Thanks keep on posting.

    1. Hi Michael, thank you for your compliment. I just use Canon PowerShot G12 – a prosumer camera.

      All passengers arrive at the same terminal, international terminal.No separation. However if you use Saudi AirLines you will arrive at South Terminal. Budget airline such as flydubai they arrive at hajj terminal. Hope this clarifies.
