The influence of the drought of 2012 was quite evident here as dust kicked up from vehicles along the gravel-paved Radio Road just northeast of Marion, Iowa enhanced the sunset on the evening of Saturday, September 29, 2012. In the top image, located about .9-mile east of Highway 13, dust from my vehicle (left) wafts across the road not unlike the rolling of fog. The image was shot around 6:30 PM. In the bottom image, shot around 6:45 PM, another vehicle raises a cloud of dust as it heads for Highway 13. As the sun was setting in the west, a harvest moon was rising in the east. Sunset was at 6:50 PM.
