Lake Huron Ice Mountains

"Mountain Range III" - Lake Huron Winter Shores

A far off mountain range in some distant land? No, this pile of snow and ice was photographed along the shores of Lake Huron in January. After a relatively mild December, a period of deep freezes and high winds began to push the fragile shore ice into great stacks of ice. High winds and extremely cold temperatures then forced waves under the ice and through cracks creating ‘ice volcanoes’ made of ice, sand and rocks from below the surface. The combination of these elements created a surreal landscape that I have never before experienced. I was so pleased that the photos captured the scale and fine details of this marvellous scene.
