Further to Ruth's post re the BV dust storm earlier this week - there's a photo featured in the Australian this weekend - and on their site - http://theaustralian.news.com.au - can be bought - its a classic - I hate dust, but that would have been worth seeing first hand, even in high summer !

Karen's a Birdsville girl and the storm happened so quickly and quietly and from completely the opposite area from normal that she couldn't get out quickly enough to get the front part of the storm. I was so taken with the storm standing in my dining room window watching that I couldn't move to get my camera (could see everyone driving around madly with the digitals) - but because the storm came from the different direction from where I was standing I could distinctly see the three fronts angled on rolling in and from when the dust hit the western part of town (the water towers and airport and Pub) it was a full 5 minutes before it hit our place and then I couldn't even see the Auto for the next 30 minutes. It was breathtaking (in more ways than one). Everyone's still talking about it - and we've putting all the camers through the TV in the shop looking at the different angles. Wolfie from Blue Poles Gallery has a brilliant shot with a dirt road in the middle of the photo and the storm rolling directly down the road at him. He's thinking of printing some for the Gallery.
