Dust Clouds Over a Kurdish Valley

in #photography6 years ago (edited)

Our host took us on a sightseeing trip around the Soran area in Iraqi Kurdistan. It was a little disappointing because all day overcast from a dusty haze caused by high winds. The dry season was just beginning and the soil was starting to lose its moisture.
I actually think the haze adds to this photo because it creates a contrast in the layers of mountain. I considered making this photo black and white but I think the color in the central mountain adds to the picture.

Winter break has been great for me so far. I've been spending time with my wife's family, hanging out and editing pictures.

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone can spend the day with loved ones.

Hazy days can be beautiful as well, just as you have shown here. Well done my friend :)

DUDE. That is a killer shot. I haven't seen that one before. Reminds me a lot of a Caspar David Friedrich painting..even the colors. I really really like it.
