WATCH: Photographer's Video Captures The Beauty And Danger Of Massive Lake Michigan Ice Caves
Posted February 26th, 2014 @ 9:49am


Michigan Photographer Ken Scott took his camera to the big lake recently, exploring the huge walls of ice and ice caves in Leelanau County. He explored an area along the Lake Michigan shoreline just north of Leland, Michigan.  So if you're like us, and curious just how  ice caves form, well it's pretty simple really.   Take fresh water from the lake, add in bitter cold and freezing temps and you get ice...lots of ice. Then you mix in strong winds during the freeze  and you get magnificent ice sculptures like the ones you see in this video.
