The start of summer season means only one thing (besides the extremely hot weather) - and that's the start of the dust season. It permeates everywhere. Everything is covered with a fine layer of brown dust. Dust and digital SLR's don't go hand in hand - which means when there's dust in the air, my camera stays inside the house. This picture was taken with a Casio P&S, which is not susceptible to dust. I am told that dust like this is good for the date fruit plantations; and I think that's the only thing it is good for. It's definitely not good for my asthma!.
