Picture of the Day: The Tsunami Cloud

This incredible photograph was taken by Gary Brink (1/800, ƒ/9, ISO 200, 135 mm) on May 29, 2011, at the Holland State Park in Michigan, USA. The incredible cloud formation formed on Lake Michigan just off the beach.

In his Flickr description, Gary remarks:

“Was out at the State Park on Sunday evening and witnessed this beautiful cloud formation on the horizon. Wasn’t long after this a big dark cloud blanket moved in very quickly and covered this cloud. The dark cloud brought an instant 5 degree plus drop in temps and a brisk wind as well. It didn’t rain but what an amazing sight to see… just never know what you’re going to get when you go out to the lake and sometimes it’s gone in the blink of an eye as well so always be prepared.”

Holland State Park features an expansive, sandy beach along Lake Michigan, two large campgrounds and a beautiful view of sailboats and sunsets. The park is divided into two separate units; one along Lake Michigan and the other along Lake Macatawa. The park was acquired from the City of Holland in December 1926. Since then it has been intensively used for its great beach and excellent campgrounds.

The Park is known for its swimming beaches on Lake Michigan and Lake Macatawa. The Ottawa County bike trail runs through the park and connects you to more than 25 miles of paved roadside trails. New to Holland State Park is the dune walk stairway and hiking trail though the Lake Macatawa Unit and historical Ottawa Beach. For more information please visit the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.
