Sand van die Sahara op die sneeu in die Franse Pireneë. These incredible images show dust from the Sahara Desert settled on the French Pyrenees. Borja Delgado captured the rare sight whilst skiing on the mountains. Storm Celia initially brought the dust to Southern Spain, where people were advised to wear masks and avoid being outside for long periods.
