Spring Tides in Netherlands – The Ultimate Machine (II)

Just as predicted, only 5 hours later, the sea level dropped, and everything went back to normal. The harbor and surrounding land are visible once again.

It’s almost unbelievable to witness such a dramatic change in landscape, in only a few hours. The sea claimed part of the land for half a day, and then returned it. Impressive force of nature!
