Mediterranean Storm

During the night of 3rd/4th May, I spent an hour unable to sleep in our appartment in Menorca due to a severe storm, the likes of which I've not seen before. The wind was banging the shutters around and the outdoor chairs and tables were getting blown around everywhere! I've no idea what the birds did to stay out of the worst of it!

By the next morning, the wind had calmed down.

Above: A view of the local coastline (taken last year) in normal circumstances (no waves to speak of) - this bit is quite sheltered.

Above: The same place from further back and a slightly wider angle, the morning after the storm.

Above: A wider angle still - further out where it is a bit more exposed.
