A guest post, this photo was taken by my daughter.
The past couple of days here have been hot.
Temps have been in the low 40's C, (100's F).
Makes for some great sunsets though.

Desert Clouds

Along the Lasseter Highway in the Northern Territory, Australia.

The photo is not edited, that is the true colour of the sand. The oxidized iron in the soil gives the whole area its distinctive and immediately recognizable reddish glow.
