Lake Michigan Ice Volcanoes

These were taken during late afternoon after the blizzard of February 2-3 passed over Milwaukee. The ENE winds were particularly strong during and after the storm. There were lake shore flood warnings posted, but I think the ice along the shoreline prevented that from happening. 

The result however, gave Milwaukee a an experience often seen along the Lake Superior shoreline, as explained in this link.
This series was taken from the McKinley beach lookout point. The ice balls are typically formed in the lake and are thrown onto the ice shelf during the storms.
While a peaceful moment, you can see two people silhouetted against the wave action.
