Michigan Lighthouses Transformed by Icy Weather

07-Jan-2014

The recent stint of arctic weather plaguing the Great Lakes has transformed some of Michigan's most iconic lighthouses into ice sculptures that look like computer-generated scenes from a Hollywood blockbuster.

This photograph of a lighthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan, was captured by photographer Thomas Zakowski.

"Depending on the year, the lighthouses can remain frozen for over a month, but it all depends on the weather," Zakowsik was quoted as saying in The Daily Mail online, www.dailymail.co.uk.

Sub-zero temperatures throughout the Great Lakes continue through today and are expected to ease slightly tomorrow.
