Rare Ice Formations from Winter Storm at Port Stanley Draws Hundreds of Visitors

The pier at Port Stanley has transformed into an incredible winter sculpture exhibit during the recent winter storms

The aftermath of a recent winter storm in Port Stanley has drawn hundreds of people to travel to the shores of Lake Erie, to view the rare ice sculpture displays caused by the storm’s high winds and below-freezing temperatures.

Photographer Nicole McCullough saw pictures of the ice formations on social media and decided to take a road trip with her family from Strathroy to see it in person. 

“To me it looks like either spirits or aliens just sculpted out of the ice going down the pier, so that’s what I wanted to capture, it’s just so magical looking and very unique,” she said.

Helen Spangenberg has lived in Port Stanley — 41 kilometres south of London, Ont. — for many years and said the ice formations are the most incredible thing she’s seen while living in the town. 

“It looks like something from Lord of the Rings. It’s totally unreal,” she said. “It’s amazing to see so many people here. Normally Port Stanley is very quiet in the winter, so it’s nice to have the tourists come back for a visit.”

While the ice formations won’t be around much longer with warmer temperatures already arriving in the region, the Instagram photos from visitors who were able to capture the scenery tell a once-in-a-lifetime tale at the magical winter wonderland at Port Stanley.
