Burning Man 07 dust storm from 4000 feet

What an incredible picture of a mad crazy playa dust storm.

"Massive dust storm overtakes Black Rock City during 2007. One of the occasional hazards at Burning Man. Photo taken by Jeff Johnstone flying an ultra-lite above the city."
I was curious about what the dust storm looked like from above and now I know. After this storm (and the second one too!), the playa dust covered everything inside my tent. I had left my glasses sitting on top of a bin (not inside, oops) inside my tent. The lens ended up wth tiny scratches all over the surface. Drat. Yet - - small price to pay for an amazing experience.
