The Calm before The Storm

Today was gray and gloomy;
with not even a whisper from the wind.

". . . these are the times of dreamy quietude, when beholding the tranquil beauty and brilliancy of the ocean's skin, one forgets the tiger heart that pants beneath it; and would not willingly remember, that this velvet paw but conceals a remorseless fang."

~ from Moby Dick (by Herman Melville)

I'm reminded of the American movie "The Fog". Good shot of the ship in the distance!
