Snowstorm at Myrtos beach on Kefalonia

The sea at Myrtos beach on Kefalonia appears to be steaming like a cauldron, in this image from a gallery of winter snow photos on the inkefalonia news and entertainment website.  The “boiling water” illusion is a rare phenomenon that occurred when a mass of cold air encountered the warmer water below. The 20-degree Celsius temperature difference caused condensation to fill the air, creating the somewhat spooky steam effect. It must have been an incredible sight to witness in person.
