This is a close up of the ice that is (was) attached to the backside of the lighthouse at the entrance of Muskegon (Michigan) harbor (in Muskegon, Michigan). During the winter months, the winds kick up the waves which splash against the lighthouse and create an “ice cave” every year. It is truly Mother Nature’s art work!

The sure sign of spring is the ice along the breakwall finally melting enough to allow us to hike out to the lighthouse again!

    Brrr, bur this looks great against the contrasting blues of the lake and sky, the ice actually picks up the blue from the water. Excellent work sis.

  • Thanks, Byron! I loved how the melting edges became clear and made such neat lines. As always, I really appreciate your feedback!

    what an amazing capture, sis…. so beautiful!!!!! barb

  • Thanks! I was quite taken by it….nature creates its own abstract artwork…I was just lucky enough to capture it! I went by there today and it is much more melted and not nearly as cool looking. As they say….timing is everything!!

    Stunning what mother nature can create. Such beauty !! Looks so cold …..brrrrrrr but beautiful. Great capture !!

  • This one really captured my heart, Sean. I’m having it matted and framed for a competition at the local art museum….and yes, it looks cold but as you know, ice can hang around in balmy weather too…like what we’re having now! I think winter is officially over!
