Beautiful Frozen Sand Sculptures Created By Cold Wind Blowing Over the Lake Michigan Shore

Photographer Joshua Nowicki has captured beautiful images of the natural frozen sand sculptures created by the cold Michigan winter wind blowing over the frozen beach at Silver County Beach Park in St. Joseph, Michigan, a coastal town that sits directly on the shore of Lake Michigan. According to Nowicki, this is a semi-rare phenomenon.

Interesting formations created by the wind eroding the frozen sand. …Saw a few two years ago but did not see them last year….The larger ones were about 10-12 inches tall.
