Visit of the desert

This is a photo reportage about La Calima in Málaga, Andalucia. Pictures were taken a couple of days after the storm of dust visited the city (24th of March, 2022). The goal was to see how the city looked after phenomena of nature visits.



The word Spanish used to describe the phenomena is La Calima. During the visit visibility in the area was very poor, the sky turned orange and the quality of air was very poor. When rainfall occurred, appeared a lot of mud in the streets. White Andalusian buildings became brown. While streets have already become as before, probably architectural objects will stay affected for many years.

La Calima is not so common in Málaga and that one became a historical event. Canary islands experience it more often.


Thank you for watching!
