Photographer Captures the Violent and Breathtaking Beauty of Lake Erie

Nature photographer brings Lake Erie to life in photos

Once the sun-bathers and day-trippers have left the shores of Port Stanley, Ontario, nature photographer Dave Sandford gets to work.

As the weather starts to turn between October and November, Sandford heads into the water in Lake Erie with his heavy duty camera to take photos of the violent waves. As Buzzfeed reports, Sandford’s inspiration comes from his younger days, β€œfrom my early childhood, I’ve always had a fascination with oceans and lakes, and the creatures that live within them.”

The resulting images, which he posts to Instagram look like the clashing of titans hidden underneath the rushing waters of Lake Erie. Take a look for yourself below.
