“Despite its initial appearance, the ice shards are a result of Lake Michigan melting,” writes Trevor Nance with “As the frozen lake melts, the liquid water waves below the ice push broken pieces of ice against one another along the coastline. The stacked pattern of broken lake ice formed incredible patterns associated with the movement of waves below the ice.”
