Yemen - January 16th, 2011

Sands from the Rub’ al Khali Desert can be seen blowing about a bit in southwestern Yemen. The sands blow over the lower parts of the dark brown mountains near the coast, but do not cross over the higher altitudes.

In the full image, more sands can be seen blowing over the desert to the north. Also, many individual rows of reddish sand dunes can be discerned.
