This image is from The Big Picture, The Earth From Above I hope Yann Arthus-Bertrand doesn’t mind me using his copyrighted image in a reduced size in this post. His photos are awesome, and it must have been hard to get permission to take some of them. In Kuwait private ownership of aircraft isn’t allowed as far as I know it so how would he do it?
I’m not sure I want to go there considering all the depleted uranium that was used in the first Gulf War. And it makes me think how much depleted uranium dust is in the air in Kuwait particularly in the dust storms that we had for so much of this year.
Here is where the photo was taken.
