Bora

The bora is a strong, cold and gusty north-easterly wind which descends across the continent to the Adriatic Sea. The gulf never forms large waves, but the gusts of wind rush across the water and can be clearly seen from the highlands. Fingers of seawater are cast up into shallow white crests that gallop across the gulf in a frantic freezing frolic.

I clearly see that the wind is there. Congratulations, wind is very difficult to make appear in a photograph.

this is the most beautiful vision of bora (or bura in Istria) ever. I remember it moving roof tiles, backing up chimneys and causing all sorts of sinus problems in Pula.
