Cloud vortex north of Russia - April 9th, 2009

Clouds begin to take on a spiralled pattern, forming a vortex over the Barents Sea, off the northern coast of Russia. Below the vortex, Kolguyev Island, Kanin Peninsula and Kola Peninsula are visible (from top to bottom on the right).

The White Sea is located between the Kola Peninsula and the Russian mainland. It is connected to the Barents Sea by Mezen Bay, between the two peninsulas. Ice on the mainland side of these bodies of water is gradually melting away, while the shoreline of the Kola Peninsula is ice-free.
