The Muslim calendar is lunar, the start of a month is marked by the appearance of the crescent moon that symbolizes the faith.
This Cheshire cat grin was the last crescent of the vanishing moon of Shabat, the month before Ramadan, traversing the pre-dawn sky as I made my way across camp that morning.
A moonless evening the winds came and lifted the sands. You'll not get the full impact in the still shot above; the trees are frozen in time, they were dancing in the dust this night, but the halo of light was visible to the eyes too.
And now Ramadan, this the third moon of the month, above camp. I walked from my tent to this sight, drew the camera quickly and shot.
Peace be with you all.
