Image Caption: The Adriatic coast of Bosnia-Herzegovina and Croatia is centered at approximately 44.5 degrees north and 15.0 degrees east. The town of Bihac is located under the cloud layer near the center of the frame. The terrain is composed of limestone and geomorphic term "karst" is named after a city in the area. The Velebit Mountains form the rugged coast in the center of the frame.

As wind moved over the southern tip of South America, it is forced around the mountain peaks and causes the formation of small circular eddies. This photograph shows the effects these eddies, called Von Karmen Vortices, have on a low altitude cloud deck.
