L: This is something that happens. R: This is also something that happens.

In each case, mineralogy and meteorology collided for some OT-plague, vengeful-God grade activity. Holy crap, that Six Flags is gonna reek during Fright Fest®.

Six Flags

Atlanta, Georgia, USA; Northern Hemisphere, water and earth

Luna Park

Sydney, Australia; Southern Hemisphere, air and earth

There’re some pretty insane “before and after” comparison shots, or whatever you want to call them, mixed in among the rest of the 1000+ photographs on the Flickr pool that I lifted the Sydney images from. Of the two phenomena, the dust storm made for more interesting images—plus the death toll for the Southern-state flooding is at, like, 10, and I felt kinda ghoulish nosing around Google Images for something as frivolous as juxtaposition pics (you’ll notice, though, that it didn’t stop me).
