A few totally crazy pictures of what’s happening when you combine an arctic blast of cold air with some wind and water from Lake Erie.

The shores of Lake Erie have been transformed into some sort of mystical ice fairy tale land thanks to mother nature.

Winds kicked up water that splashed and froze onto anything it could reach, docks, piers, light posts, even navigational buoys.

Since the creations started appearing, the pier and shores of the lake have become a destination for photographers.

The cold weather is also responsible for other natural wonders along Lake Erie, including in the lake: pancakes, or frozen jelly fish:

The natural phenomenon is reportedly caused when ice chunks start to form, and then are blown by arctic winds and bump into each other.

and ice balls:

WOW! Almost just too eerie to be true!

  1. Ice balls aren’t uncommon. Chunks of ice break off and are tumbled, like river rocks, into smooth balls. Pretty neat-o if you ask me.
