Stunning frozen waves of Lake Michigan show the brutal power of nature


THE LIGHTHOUSES on Lake Michigan are barely recognisable as spectacular frozen ice formations turn the constructions into incredible sculptural forms.Photographer Tom Gill has been documenting the ice formations on the lighthouses of southern Lake Michigan for many years, and even though he doesn’t care much for cold weather, he looks forward to the winter when the ice forms.
Though the risky walk to the lighthouse isn’t one for the faint of heart as the pier is covered in a layer of ice.  Most of the way was slow going, but the walk next to the inner light was the most difficult.

    Nice pictures.
    That looks somewhat similar to that place in Siberia, the coldest inhabited place in the world.

      Thanks for commenting roberta4949. I’m with you, I wouldn’t go walking around there either! My balance is bad and I hate slipping & sliding.

      The pic above reminds me of some kind of Medusa monster.
