Living in the desert it is easy to become blasè about the warmth and the heat.
Every now and then there is a scene which highlights the temperature.
The smoke rising to its self-created clouds is one hint, the second is not as noticable.
Down on the ground, to the left of the main smoke plume, is a small flash of brown rising slightly into the sky.
It is the beginning of a “Willy Willy” a wind rotation which occurs on still, hot days. They can reach a thousand metres into the air and can be quite violent at ground level.
Small tornadoes in a clear sky.
This one was not a large one, just a small hint at what could happen.
