Mother Nature is an artist at heart as American photographer Thomas Zakowski proves with his captures of frozen lighthouses. The work of Lake Michigan, the waters have risen and flowed in such a dangerously beautiful way as to almost completely (and at times completely) cover these lakeshore staples. The ice formation that Thomas Zakowski photographs are almost out of this world.

Taken after a storm battered the state due to the polar vortex recently experienced in the United States, Thomas Zakowski's photographs show just how strong and resolute these structures are. Although a lot of destruction and even death resulted from the storm, Thomas Zakowski shows that with it came a unique beauty that a person cannot help but appreciate. Mother Nature certainly has a morbid sense of humor.
