Was reading up on Wikipedia about Hurricane Katrina (wanted to know what it's max category was..5) and found this picture.

At first glance, it looks very similar to the headwall on Tucks, until you realize it was shot inside the eye of the hurricane.

Beautiful and deadly all at the same time.

Amazing photo. From the inside it doesn't look that dangerous; actually quite peaceful. Let's hope no one gets slammed from Gustav next week.

Amazing how clear and calm it always looks above and around the eye. No hint of the torment below.
