Upon hearing about a major sand storm approaching Kuwait City from the North, I quickly grabbed my camera and tripod and headed towards a high-rise building that would give me a decent wide view of the city. Once setup, I saw the storm fast approaching and quickly looked into the viewfinder and noticed that my wide angle lens will not do the unbelievable scene justice. The decision was made quickly, a Panorama. Within 8 minutes it was pitch dark.
