"The blue ice is incredible, when it shows up, it's like these mountains of ice just appear on the shores out of nowhere," Tori Burley, a photographer from Mackinaw City, told WFMY. "They're huge, I haven't seen a photo that truly does them justice on just how giant they are."
Photos might not do the ice justice, but the photos below from Burley, who says she has been waiting seven years to photograph blue ice, start to get the idea across. FOX reports the stacks this year have reached as high as 30 feet.
"It's amazing, and it doesn't happen this big that often, which makes it even more exciting," Burley said, adding that photographers should arrive at sunrise or just before sunset to see the blue at its most brilliant.
