A story behind: As we were approaching the city of Patras from the south the sky clouded over. Dark low clouds started filling up the skies. Really fast winds had begun to pick up. 
Some sounds of thunder could be heard. 
It was only time until some rain came. This storm just came out of completely nowhere.
We stopped the car and started to shoot photos before the rain came over us. 

The Rio-Antirio bridge appearing from the left margin of the photo added a nice perspective to the scene.
