that is an amazing picture.
It's a bulk carrier, not an oil tanker
you’re quite right of course. thanks for pointing it out.
This is NOT a hurricane photo. This is, rather, a small sea storm. Note how low the clouds are. Hurricanes can top out at 60,000 feet (+). You can see blue sky right over the top of this thing. Note the nonexistence of any waves. Note how relatively small the circumference is of that storm. The width of hurricanes are hundreds of miles wide! Sorry… NOT a hurricane by any stretch of the imagination!
beebojupe is pretty rude. sweet photo. chill out beebojupe
Beebojupe may be rude, but also is right about the storm. And, yes, nice pic
wow i would crap myself if i took this picture……..
It is a hurricane. I have seen many photos and was in Miami for Hurricane Andrew. This is exactly what the sky looked like. The low ceiling effect, the mushrooming… You don't forget this ever. It's terrifying.
That boat is going straight into that… whatever it is, I think this is a typical moment were the captain would say: 'Houston, we have a problem'
I’ve lived in Florida for the full 23 years of my life, and this it definitely a hurricane! You can even see the clouds being twisted into the edge of the spire. Quite a beautiful photo. …. I miss Charlie… He came and went too fast… … Did you really drive into that thing!?
