While in a small desert town in Egypt, I hired a bicycle with another traveler and we rode out to find some sand dunes. During the trip, the wind started to become stronger and stronger and eventually it was blowing sand and dust through the air, making it harder to cycle. My visions of clear blue sky sand dune photos were clearly not going happen. Instead, I stopped to capture the moment, as a local was riding towards the camera.
