If there’s one place you don’t want to be standing in a storm, it’s right next to the frigid waters of Lake Michigan in winter. Then again, on the sunny day following the storm, it’s downright beautiful. Photographer Thomas Zakowski recently hit the shores of the massive lake with his camera, aimed at capturing the fantastic lighthouses that dot the shore. His images of the ice covered towers and their surrounding piers are simply stunning.

The result of the recent polar vortex hitting the US, each lighthouse is encased in a crystalline shell after being hit by waves that freeze to their classic exteriors. Icicles hang from every surface, even piling up on the windward side of the tower. You can see more of Zakowski’s fantastic shots on 500px.
