This narrow slither of land between Ghana and Benin is the subject of this videographer's work. This video shows the country at the beginning of the Harmattan, a dry and dusty northeasterly trade wind, that sweeps the region from November till March — hence the golden glow. 

You can see more of the videographer's work on his Vimeo page.
