Winds kicked up water that splashed and froze onto anything it could reach, docks, piers, light posts, even navigational buoys.

Noah Harrison took this incredible photos Monday at Miller Road Park in Avon Lake, that's about 30 miles west of Cleveland.


"Awesome pictures," commented one person on social media. "Reminds me of Pirates of the Caribbean....only frozen."

Since the creations started appearing, the pier and shores of the lake have become a destination for photographers.

The cold weather is also responsible for other natural wonders along Lake Erie, including in the lake.

The Lorain Lighthouse posted pictures on Twitter Monday of what looks like pancakes, or frozen jelly fish.

The natural phenomenon is reportedly caused when ice chunks start to form, and then are blown by arctic winds and bump into each other.
