Bene, (full photo coverage of those)..eheheh

Last weekend we had no les than 3 cold fronts in one day...I saw them...all coming from land (North winds)...

The 1 hour right after each had passed the seas were nice and calm, the air would warm, and one would think the bonanza had arrived...we were hit over and over again..the 3rd one was the worse one

See the photos bellow as taken from the sea...

This is before the first one, "the not so bad" after the other 2 hit us..



the photo bellow is taken between the 1st and second cold fronts..look at the sea, calm and nice..and even some sun..



but you could see the second one coming..


this is after the first had passed looking to the sea...you can see it dark in the air



This is the second one coming




the second one gone
