Stormy weather in Chania

A rainbow seen from Halepa, Chania. The ruined buidlings in the foreground are old tanneries which were located right by the sea.
The stange colour of the sea is probably caused by the large quantities of (red) earth that have been washed into the sea by the recent heavy rains. First the sea turns brown red. This is the next stage where the mud has either settled at the bottom or been dispersed but there are still a lot of particles floating in the water.
