Lake Superior is one of the largest lakes in the world. It is one of the Great Lakes and is an important shipping port for many of Minnesota’s products. It is so large at points that you cannot see the other side. It looks like a grand ocean. Yet you are fooled when you remember that it is simply a lake albeit a big one.
Photo taken looking over the North Shore of Lake Superior in early June as a storm was approaching. Apparently there has been so much rain in that area that two weeks later, many of the roads are flooded and closed.
Wonderful atmospheric shot!!! Cheers Nonoy Manga
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed! Nicole
That’s a wonderful shot, Nicole – the storm clouds and rain-burst vying with those wonderful precambrian rocks for our attention. Sorry: the lake doesn’t get a look in, for me, except as a conduit leading to that rain patch:)
Thanks! Glad you enjoyed! This area is now in a State of Emergency! It has severe flooding due to all our crazy rain and storms lately. Even the seas escaped from the zoo but were luckily found. We have had quite the summer so far and it has just began!
Wild and unpredictable weather – it seems to be happening more frequently, or is that just circumstantial, I wonder?
Global warming! I’m a strong believer even though some people deny it! 🙂
It seems inconceivable that doubters remain:)
It’s so warm right now in Milan that a storm sounds great, gorgeous photo..
Thanks! It is hard to be hot when you have no where to cool down! We have plenty of lakes for that! Today is gorgeous and the beach is in order after all the rain we’ve had!
