Gulf of Taranto, Italy - April 9th, 2009

Clouds swirl in a spiral shape, forming a cloud vortex in the Gulf of Taranto, part of the Ionian Sea, in southern Italy.

The Gulf of Taranto is almost square, 140 km long and wide, and is delimited by the capes Santa Maria di Leuca (east, Apulia) and Colonna (west, in Calabria).

It is surrounded by three Italian regions, Apulia, Basilicata, and Calabria. The most important rivers are the Basento, the Sinni, and the Agri. The main cities on the gulf are Taranto and Gallipoli.
