A (not so) distant storm

Some people's leisurly sailing is someone else's nightmare...

 

(Another holiday shot by George, post-processed by me. It needed more intervention, as it was more noisy and unsharp. Bringing out detail while killing noise is a conflicting, near-impossible task. Thanks to Topaz Labs it was reasonably resolved. Localised exposure and contrast corrections gave it 'that' HDR-like look.)
