Saw this on the TV news here in Thailand, looks terrifying! This is an awesome shot and like the others said already - love the contrast of (what was?) a crystal clear swimming pool!

If this does not yet have an AC I do hope it will soon. Agreed about the contrast of the cool, clean pool with the impending dust cloud. Very dramatic shot.

Can you hear me screaming??? I am. What an incredible sight to witness and this photograph makes me feel like I'm right there with you. Not only the dust storm but the sun rays in the sky. I feel like I could just go take a jump in that pool too. I can only imagine what it's going to look like after this. Thank you so much for showing us what it's really like. Congratulations on an awesome AC.

Quoting ColoradoKat:
Whoa! Looks like that pretty pool is about to get it's own beach! Man, that is scary! I
think about all the people who move to AZ
because they have breathing problems..not good!
How long does it take for this thing to pass
through? Great shot! Congratulations.


Usually after about a hour things start to mellow out some. We got no rain out of this one just dust/sand.

Oh, no, not again! Last dust storm in Phoenix & vicinity was horrific. Looks ominous. At least there will be business for pool covers. Hope you have one. Take care.

Wow! Captivating! The bright blue pool, diagonal lines of the shadows on the fence aligned with the lines of the clouds,and the oncoming dust that looks like it is going to blow the house away. Congratulations!
