After the photographs of the pink sky in my previous post, this seems quite a change.
This is the scene today evening. In the morning on our way to office, the visibility was down to about 25m. High winds had whipped up the sand and dust. It improved in the evening.. and this is the picture.
Another view. The two high mobile telephone towers are invisible.
Everything seems to be covered by fine dust. This is my first experience of a sandstorm here.
