Reflection of clouds while camels transport salt in Afar desert

For centuries, Afar people extract the salt in the Danakil depression. Then the salt is transported by camels to the town. There was a small layer of water on top of the salt. The sun was already high when clouds started to pop up and gave this amazing reflections of clouds in the water, while filtering the rays of light.
