Liquid mountains: Powerful images show North America's Lake Erie whipped into a frenzy of 30 foot waves by autumnal storms
  • Photographer Dave Sandford captured the volatile nature of the large body of water from sunrise to sunset
  • In order to get the dramatic shots, the intrepid artist used a life ring and rope to get close to the surges and swells
  • What particularly captivates the professional about this lake is how it can turn from calm to deadly in just minutes

Check out Gordon Lightfoot's song "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" if you want to know what those waves can do.

Very cool shots. Anyone know where he was taking these? I'm in Cleveland and the first thing that struck me was how these photos captured that evil grey color Erie takes on when she's mad.

I'll attest to the lakes ability to kick up in a hurry as well, I've been chased with my tail between my legs from perch fishing many a time. The pictures catch something that I'm told is somewhat unique to Erie. You don't see big rolling surf, it looks like a giant washing machine, mass chaos.

For the terrifying part we blame the Canadians. Keep sending that north wind southward. Seems to pick up some attitude on the way.
