Photographer Captures Powerful Waves On Lake Erie As Liquid Mountains

Dave Sandford is a professional sports photographer of 18 years whose hometown is London, Ontario, Canada. Over the past 4 weeks, for 2 to 3 days per week, Sandford has been driving 45 minutes to Lake Erie, spending up to 6 hours a day photographing the lake.

The photos are awe-inspiring: Sandford gets in the water and shoots the powerful choppy waves in a way that makes them look like epic mountain peaks that are exploding into the atmosphere. Sandford focuses on Erie in the last few months of the year when the Great Lakes often act more like oceans than lakes: the arrival of cold, windy weather comes with violent waves — Erie has caused thousands of shipwrecks over the past centuries.
