Foto Fakery

With Isabel in the news it doesn't take anytime at all for the freepers (did I get that term right? Filchy Boy loves it I like it too) to get their share of the bandwidth. Below is an expanded cropped version of this "cool picture". Notice how the hurricane has been deposited off the port bow. Of course this guys account might blow out it's bandwidth so if the link doesn't work there is another copy here. Ham fisted editing it's enough to make Mark quit his Photoshop session. Seriously I think Mark is offline for a while. Seems the real Isabel dumped lots of water his way along with trees and power-lines and all the other detritus pushed by some healthy wind. Hope you are dry and pleasantly buzzed big guy and the missus and all you hold dear safe and sound.

Our local meterologist said that while that clearly isn't Isabel, it could be a real thunderstorm - the clouds apparently look to be a genuine shelf cloud. Even if it's a fake, though, it's a pretty cool image :)

OK it's cool but still an artificial image. Yes it is a shelf cloud and as straight a line as the cloud can develop I don't believe it can't create the right angle clearly seen in the "closeup". has a "cool" picture of the spiral lift.
