Thanks, Hybiscus...I thought it was good too. The storm was quite heavy and very windy soon after I took that shot from the balcony of our hotel.

For the first time we think there are something wrong with the picture, but not. I think you or anybody else will find the same situation again. Congratulations! Very good!

This photo does look askew, but I assure everyone, that is exactly how the sky appeared before I took the photo from the balcony to my hotel. And, the storm was pretty fast and furious shortly afterwards. Thanks for your comments.

The calm sea and double horizon, in contrast to the churning sky, the expectation that something might Happen make this a great image, Phoebus
