Joshua Nowicki grabbed his camera and braved the sub-zero temperatures, ranging from -5 and -15 degrees Fahrenheit over the weekend, and snapped a frozen-over lighthouse in St. Joseph, which rests on Lake Michigan.

The waves from the lake slammed against the lighthouse and combined with the frigid weather conditions, it caused the lighthouse to ice over, creating a magical castle look.

Nowicki even posted video of the incident on Facebook.

The lighthouse looked as if it came directly from the movie Frozen or a similar fairytale.
