Kalkan water spout 12th March 2008

Can you remember what you were doing ten years ago today?

Today in Kalkan is a lovely day - a little cloudy but with some blue sky and the sun peeking through.  But on this day in 2008 things were a little different. 

On the 12th March 2008 the sky above was black and looking out to sea you could catch a glimpse of daylight.  Forming below the clouds were funnels of swirling wind - or water spouts, to give them their proper name.

From our safe vantage point in Kızıltaş we photographed the gathering storm and tracked one water spout as it traversed the bay and made landfall, sweeping up towards the nearby village of Akbel. 

Here are just a few photos to remind you of what visited Kalkan ten years ago today.  At the time we submitted one of these photos to the BBC weather department and it was featured on a UK TV weather bulletin.
