On Sunday, a photographer named John Kucko came across a very peculiar find, when he visited a remote spot in Webster, New York that is located near the shoreline of Lake Ontario.
The reason John often frequents the area, is in order to take a few sunset photographs. However, on this specific day, it was not the magnificent sunset that caught his eye.
Read below to find out more.
What John Kucko found is a beach house that is entirely covered in ice, making it look like something out of a fantasy movie.
According to CNN, the home’s state is the result of freezing winter temperatures, paired with the moisture of the nearby lakes and the persistent high winds of late.
Other contributing factors
As per CBS News, “[t]his house, unlike neighboring houses facing the lake, doesn’t have a retaining wall. Therefore, the freezing temperatures combined with water and wind coated the house in layers of ice.”
Slammed by the public
After making the initial discover, John Kucko decided to post a few photographs he took of the house on his Facebook page. However, not long after posting the images, Kucko was accused of ‘photoshopping’ the snaps as they looked too unrealistic for many to believe them to be real.
In response to the accusations, John Kucko then decided to post the above 30 second follow up video on his page, as proof of his find.
An added tweet just to make sure
John also turned to Twitter to post the above tweet as further proof of the images’ legitimacy.
