A well-defined horseshoe vortex near Mt. Nanos today

I have observed a horseshoe vortex for the first time here and was impressed it actually formed on the Lee clouds behind the main Bora wall which was rolling over Nanos all day. Quite strong Bora was blowing today, as intensifying ridge is east of the Alps. Looks like there was incredible vorticity present in the Lee side of the Mt. Nanos! The vortex lasted for about one minute. Here are some photos…

And two close-up shots…
