The Rock of Gibraltar Levanter Cloud


The Rock of Gibraltar Levanter Cloud

Seen here is a levant cloud forming against the eastern cliffs of the Rock of Gibraltar. The levant is an easterly wind that blows in the western Mediterranean Sea and southern France, an example of mountain-gap wind. In the western Mediterranean, particularly when the wind blows through the Strait of Gibraltar, it is called the Viento de Levante or the Levanter. [source]
