Autumn rain in the desert

children run into the flood

From the 29th of september until the 1st of October, it had been raining in a vast area of the desert. We knew that  this was a special moment to go to the desert, to see it cleaned, creating new patterns and flooding leaving rivers, pools and even lakes for a short time after. So we decided to go and check out some very special locations on the Tuesday, 2nd of October. This was one the best decisions we ever took because it actually rained again while we were there, so between running for shelter, to the car or simply avoiding to end up in a flood path, I managed to take a few pics that you rarely get the chance to take.

All the Bedouin from the villages came out to witness the spectacle, a feeling of joy and gratitude was shared by everyone.

We will be regularly going to these areas to see how the landscape evolves as shrubs and plants start sprouting and growing. If you would like to join us or want more information, don’t hesitate to contact us
