Our World: Jeddah's Lantern Sculpture in Sandstorm

Jeddah is a pretty dusty place, due to not much vegetation, construction, and sandstorms.  The Mameluke Lanterns sculpture is still recognizable despite bad visibility during a sandstorm, although the beautiful stained glass detailing is not evident.

Here are some other previous posts I have made of the lanterns:

Even in a sandstorm they stand out well.

I wondered what they were at first but clicking back to your previous photos shows them in a completely different light. They are amazing and now I understand how they could still be seen on such a dusty day.

At first I thought it was fog, amazing how the sand can fill the air like that
