Watching The Waves Grow In This Timelapse Video Was Almost Terrifying

A spectacular event occurred in the Great Lakes area when freak weather caused the usually placid waters of Lake Michigan to rage like a tempestuous sea. Winds of 50 miles per hour caused 20-foot waves to batter the coast, and public beaches were closed for safety.

Despite the turbulent water, several people still turned up at the shore to capture this extreme weather event; and for some, the thrill of taking on Mother Nature’s fury is irresistible. Michigan surfers live for this kind of weather, but it is definitely not for the faint of heart. One big wave at the right (wrong?) time and whoosh! You’re in the lake. But who are we to deny someone the thrill of nature.

Either up close or at a distance, the beauty and force of nature on our Great Lakes is something truly incredible.
