Extremely cold temperatures caused the crashing waves from Lake Erie to freeze on the surface of the Cleveland Harbor West Pierhead Lighthouse forming a bizarre structure - much like a sand castle. I took this during my yesterday's lunch break. I drove through the lakefront at Edgewater park and took some other amazing pictures of frozen structures. I will post them during the next days.
I like the illusion in this photo that the bottom looks like a beach where the birds are hanging out - but they are actually on the semi frozen lake surface. The white snow on the surface even gives the illusion of waves.
