Glenn Hughson took these photos on March 10, 2019, on the Lake Michigan shoreline in Manistique, a city in the Upper Peninsula of the U.S. state of Michigan. Glenn told us:

I’ve seen plenty of frozen lakes, but never with the waves frozen like this before.


He described his other photo (below):

I was able to walk out around 100 feet or so on top of the waves before reaching this edge where the frozen waves ended.
