Monday Pic


The photo below shows red dust blown out to sea ahead of Cyclone Narelle on 9 January 2013, at Onslow in Western Australia. The cyclone did not cause the storm although the storm was in a cloud band related to thunder storm activity due to the cyclone's presence. Strong wind gusts and rain caused the storm to dump the sand and dust which it had gathered while passing Onslow. 




Some other pics of the same storm:
