    Amazing Lake Superior


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     joycewilmot Along the shore of Lake Superior, you can almost hear the sound of frozen waves crack on shore as the lake's current breaks up the sheets of ice. This photo was featured as CNN's Travel Photo of the Day for March 5, 2014.
    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    Once or twice each winter, when the lake current, air temperature, and winds are just right, something magnificent happens along the shoreline of the Great Lakes. This particular photo was taken along the shores of Lake Superior in February 2013. We had arrived in Lutsen, MN to ski and stayed at the Lutsen Lodge. The day we arrived the air temperature was cold and yet the lake was free of ice. The next day when we woke up, the lake was transformed into a winter wonderland. The lake current was pushing thin sheets of ice toward the lake shore. There were loud sounds of ice crackling and snapping as pieces of ice break up and are pushed into piles along the beaches.
