The Remnants Of Gonu - #279


Cyclone Gonu has just grazed the UAE - it was a serious category 5 hurricane (the maximum). Oman was hit hard with a lot of flooding and Iran has suffered losses of life.

Dubai was quite far from the effected areas, however I am sure the clouds tonight in this shot were somehow related to the great depression of Gonu.

With the shot - I gotta say, even though it's "mine" - I particularly like it...

Well, you learn something new every day. I never imagined that the Gulf States suffered from cyclones.
