Question Fake Hurricane Pictures???

These photos are making the rounds on the Internet. To me they look fake because the water is too calm.

What do you all think?

Both are fake and have been around for a while. I've seen both pics months ago.

The first one made it on the Drudge report. I emailed them about the fake; I guess it's gone now.

Either way, the pics are beautiful.

They are pics of wall clouds. These are the thunderstorms that form tornados.

Actually come to think of it the whole thing is fake. the clouds and even the tanker. zoom in on the side of the cloud and notice how it is a perfectly straight line down and across. It is a Photoshop cutter. Also some of the pixels on the ship do not match up.
