SNOW IN THE DESERT
In the last year, Ain Sefra - a desert town in Algeria known as the "Gateway to the Sahara" - experienced a unique phenomenon following a season of unpredictable weather fluctuations. The hot and arid region was subjected to heavy snowfall - reportedly the third time in 40 years. Officially, the area received just one inch of snow but was enough to create a visually captivating canvas for landscape photography. Historically, it's not uncommon for the temperature across even the hottest of deserts to plunge tens of degrees Farenheit at night. However, snow on the desert is scant and rarely does it form a blanket of white that blend superbly with the gold dust of the sand dunes.
