Subscriber here. Thanks for your site, on which I spend way too much time. I’ve attached a photo from my most recent Afghanistan trip, the third one in three years. This is the view from the Air Force compound at Kandahar AB looking northeast during a dust storm. Feel free to use it for the contest.
