Central part of Pag island,...

Central part of Pag island, some 45km away, engulfed with salty fog cloud which is on places 400m high! Sveti Vid (349m) is barely visible rounded head left of the middle.
Fog is raised by the hurricane force Bura wind that is blowing below Mid Velebit in this situation. Because Velebit is very long, depending on the weather situation, Bura can have different strength along the massif at the same time. But this situation is rare and so is the chance to catch it because usually whole channel is engulfed with the spray. This window of opportunity opens when Bura is gradually picking up strength along the massif.
