Photographer braved the elements to capture this video of the sunset behind the St. Joseph Lighthouse on the southeastern shore of Lake Michigan after it froze last week.
Looks like Nowicki wasn't the only photographer to brave the elements this weekend to photograph the St. Joseph Lighthouse.
While these photos are incredible, we don't recommend risking your life to get this dangerous shot. Just follow our lead and admire them from the warmth of your own house…or at least from the lens of a drone like these guys did.
