Smoke in the Wind

Cairo has the unfortunate honour of being one of the most polluted cities in the world, which is one reason that I live on the edge of the western desert. Oddly enough, one of the reasons for the pollution can't be seen easily unless the wind is blowing enough of the crud out of the valley for the chimneys of the cement factories of Helwan to be made out....like today.

So nice to be back. I really missed having a camera.

Interesting....If I understand the phenomena correctly, the source of the pollution creates so much pollution that it cannot be seen as being the source of the pollution.
