Heatwave in the mountains

I went to the mountains (a little beyond the summit of Melindaou) to take photos of flowers and partly to escape the heatwave. It turned out that the higher you went the hotter it got and at 2000m the temperatures were above 30°C. We've also had a lot of Sahara dust in the past few days which explains the murkiness of the photo.
Sheep are out in the mountains now but haven't been shorn (too early in May because it's normally still too cold higher up) but because it is so incredibly hot they have to take refuge on the snow to cool off. You can see them on the big snow field in the foreground. Or see a detail here.
