Tom Gill's striking winter photos capture instances where elements like water and wind have transformed Lake Michigan's St. Joseph North Pier, lighthouses and fences into otherworldly icy structures. During the winters at this pier, the water tends to crash and freeze in place as if time has stilled.

With these icy elements coating the built elements of the pier, the structures are transformed into fantastical structures that look like something you might find in a fantasy movie with a magical ice kingdom. These structures have been standing since the 1900s, but the remarkable built elements have endured the harsh, icy winters year after year, as documented in Gill's incredible photo series of the famous frozen lighthouse and pier.
