sand storm in Iraq

This is a selection (about half) from a set of photos called Sand Storm in Iraq: April 26, 2005. There's no further explanation. Internal evidence suggests they were taken by someone who works for a contactor at a military compound in the Iraq desert. {Click image to see full size.}

This was Al Asad Airbase in the Anbar Province- 26 April, 2005. The top photos were taken by a civilian contractor- I think he worked in the fuel yard. The bottom photo was taken by me. I posted it on some other site the day after, and it's absolutely amazing how much it has spread around since then. I have a video of it coming in and engulfing us from the exact same spot. It was surreal.
