Namibia - March 5th, 2010

A cloud vortex is visible just off the coast of Namibia, next to the Namib Desert. The orange sands of the desert gradually appear darker in color as they approach the Naukluft Mountains to the east.

Atmospheric phenomena such as fog and clouds along the coastline are common in this region due to the interaction of dry air from the desert with moisture-laden area from the ocean.
