Sníh. Na Sahaře. V Africe. Až zas někdo bude říkat, že všechny ty klimatické změny jsou blbost a vůbec nic není jinak než v předchozích letech, ukažte mu následující fotky.

Zatímco my tady na bílé Vánoce čekáme už několik let jako na smilování a něco málo napadne jen výjimečně, na Sahaře si klidně sněží. Poušť v severní Africe je patrně úplně poslední místo, kde byste to čekali. Je to poprvé za 40 let, co horkou poušť a její červené duny pokryl alespoň malý poprašek sněhu.

V roce 1979 to bylo vůbec poprvé ve zmapované historii, kdy obyvatelé Alžírska viděli sníh – sněhová bouře tu ale trvala jenom půl hodiny. Teď, v roce 2016, se sníh objevil podruhé. Během dne sice roztál, ale vydržel dost dlouho na to, aby někdo mohl vyrazit s foťákem do terénu a nafotit jedny z nejvzácnějších fotek na světě. Podobné už zase nejspíš dlouho nevzniknou.

Jejich autorem je amatérský fotograf Karim Bouchetata. Sníh nafotil 19. prosince v malém pouštním městečku na jihu Alžírska, v Ain Sefra. Sám přiznal, že jde o opravdu výjimečnou věc. Vytvořil fotky, o kterých si v první chvíli budete myslet, že vylezly z Photoshopu. Ale ne. Je to jen příroda – se vší svojí podivností, nevyzpytatelností a samozřejmě i krásou.

England is not set to have a white Christmas - but SNOW has fallen in the SAHARA desert for only the SECOND time in living memory. Amateur photographer Karim Bouchetata took incredible pictures of snow covering the sand in the small Saharan desert town of Ain Sefra,Algeria, yesterday afternoon (Mon). He captured the amazing moment snow fell on the red sand dunes in the world's largest hot desert for the first time in 37 YEARS. Snow was last seen in Ain Sefra, known as "The Gateway to the Desert," on February 18, 1979, when the snow storm lasted just half an hour. This time the snow stayed for a day in the town, which is around 1000 metres above sea level and surrounded by the Atlas Mountains. Karim said: "Everyone was stunned to see snow falling in the dessert, it is such a rare occurrence. It looked amazing as the snow settled on the sand and made a great set of photos. "The snow stayed for about a day and has now melted away."
