    Reported by:

    I ventured out to the Superstition Mountains (AZ) last evening when I noticed a gigantic haboob (violent dust storm) approaching from the south. It was traveling at such a clip that I barely had time to locate a place and set up before it totally engulfed the entire front range. Quite dramatic.

    Great sense of foreboding here, you caught this scene of nature at work at just the right moment as the dust overtakes everything. Thank you.
