Peter Maier: Tsunami from Heaven

The awesome beauty of Mother Nature captured by Peter Maier.

Mother Nature’s beautiful and mysterious ways have been caught on camera by a professional photographer who has captured time-lapse footage of a powerful rainstorm over a lake in Austria.

The video, titled ‘Tsunami from Heaven’ shows blue skies turning grey as rain clouds swoop in over Lake Millstatt in Carinthia, Austria.

It doesn’t take long to see why photographer Peter Maier gave the video its title, as the downpour of the rainstorm does indeed look like a tsunami coming from the heavens.

  1. Rather spectacular videos but calling them tsunamis?

      It used to be called [amongst other things] Artistic License:

      Artistic license (also known as art license, historical license, dramatic license, poetic license, narrative license, licentia poetica, creative license, or simply license) is a colloquial term, sometimes a euphemism, used to denote the distortion of fact, alteration of the conventions of grammar or language, or rewording of pre-existing text made by an artist in the name of art.

      The real issue is that academia has added Settled Science to that long list of synonyms.

    This really is stunning.

    • It is quite normal. Traveling home last autumn, one such downpour was visible. In the space of two miles I entered the cloudburst, which refilled my reservoir, and exited to bone dry roads. This is central Med.
