Sand Storm

Kuwait city

The Middle East is famous of its dry weather. Sand storms or "Haboob" occurs every season between Spring and Winter.

The Haboob

I am a landscape and cityscape photographer from Kuwait. A roof toper too! In the weather change between Spring and Summer I keep my eyes open for the Sand Storm season to approach and choose my places on roof tops. Its hard to get an easy access as they happen suddenly without any knowledge expect few hours before it approaches the city. The happens as north wind is very active.

I was able to capture it hitting my country State Of Kuwait During the years 2011, 2014 and 2015
