Shot Notes

I drove through this dust storm shortly after crossing the border from South Australia into Victoria earlier today. I have never experienced anything like it before. I did not expect it to include bands of heavy rain. This unusual combination turned much of the traffic completely orange. At a couple of points, it overwhelmed my windscreen wipers so I had to stop and clean it by hand. The moment I opened the door I was hit by the strong winds and dust. It was how I imagine stepping onto the surface of Mars.

Tomorrow, after I clean my vans air filter, I should cross into New South Wales on my way to the Blue Mountains.
