West Africa - May 25th, 2012


Dust blows over Mauritania (above) and Senegal (below), off the coast of West Africa, and over the Cape Verde Archipelago (left edge and close-up). In the close-up,  loose swirls of clouds – remnants of von Kármán vortex streets – can be seen south and southwest of the islands.
