Since 1911, ships entering the Cuyahoga River in Cleveland, Ohio have been guided by the Cleveland Harbor West Pierhead lighthouse. Now, the lighthouse itself became a tourist attraction because ice covered it making it look like a huge ice sculpture, international news reported on Wednesday.

Photographers took advantage of the clear skies and took pictures of the ice-covered lighthouse throughout the day.

“Last spring I had some pictures of an ore carrier moving through here while there was still some ice on the lake, but the lighthouse was clear, so I’ll be looking forward to comparing it today,” Kolma Rosenberg, an amateur photographer was quoted saying.

“I have a picture of it in the summertime from the water, and now I have a winter picture,” Jess Hamilton, an observer said.

The lighthouse is automated and solar-powered since 1965. It does not need a lighthouse keeper, reports said.
