Desert of Death, Afghanistan
Photograph by Thomas J. Abercrombie

Like drifting clouds, hilltops mirrored in a mirage appear to float behind a Land Rover. The illusion is created by heat waves shimmering in the 120-degree (49-degree-Celsius) temperatures of the Dasht-i-Margo—Afghanistan’s so-called “Desert of Death.”

死亡沙漠,阿富汗
摄影:Thomas J. Abercrombie

如同天上飘过的白云,陆虎越野车的后面浮现出许多山顶的蜃景。这种幻象是由Dasht-i-Margo——号称阿富汗的“死亡沙漠”中华氏120度(摄氏49度)的空气热浪产生的投影形成的。
