I’m not really a fan of heavy rain if I have to go outside. But listening to it from the coziness of my room is just fine – and so is watching this awesome timelapse. It was made by Peter Maier and shows a microburst as it moves across a lake in Austria.
Peter is an Austria-based alpinist and creator for Austrian National Tourist Office. Although this video he made is kinda old (made in 2018), it seems to be gaining traction again. It shows as he calls it a tsunami from heaven” as it moves across the lake. This phenomenon is called a microburst, which is a localized column of sinking air, in this case, followed by heavy rain. Watching a microburst is crazy even in real-time, and when you see it in a timelapse it’s even crazier.
After first posting the video on Facebook, Peter said that he was in the right place at the right time, calling it a “lucky shot.” However, he sure knows how to create stunning work, and you can find more of it on Instagram.
