That's a great shot Mark.

I agree with Mike and and Ray, I hope the freighter turned tail and went the other way.

Sorry to rain on your parade... http://snopes.com/photos/isabel.asp

It is a real picture but is not of Hurricane Isabel.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Whether it's Isabel or not, it's pretty scary. Glad I was not on a cruise ship and seeing that sight!

Even the Weather Channel on Sunday was saying this photo was a fake. The cloud is a shelf cloud from a tornadic thunderstorm, the clouds above the shelf cloud are strato-cummulus (not storm clouds) and the seas is WAY too calm to be approaching a hurricane....there should have been huge waves in that photo if it were real.

But, it is a very interesting doctored photo.

Mark, it probably took me about ten seconds to "unmask" the photo. Just go to http://www.snopes.com.

Cheers,

Thank you Auguste. I am a software engineer and even though I deal with computers every day, I wish I were as computer-savvy as some others on the boards, like Mike and Paul. There's a lot of practical stuff and information about the web I would like to learn more about.

With something like finding out about an urban legend, half the battle is knowing where to look.

Cheers,
Michelle B.
