With the onset of spring, Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes of North America has turned into a beautiful piece of art. Ice shards have filled the lake with frozen ice breaking into a million pieces. The ice pieces look stacked up together putting up a stunning sight at South Haven. It looks like a collection of beautiful blue tiles from afar. Meanwhile, the US Coast Guard has told residents to watch the scene from a distance and not enter the lake.
According to MLive.com US Coast Guard's site says, "No ice is safe ice especially this time of year. The ice is certainly deteriorating and breaking up." Earlier this month, fifty-six percent of Lake Michigan was covered by ice.

The shattered ice formation was caused by water moving underneath the ice making different patterns on the top. 56 percent of the lake remains frozen. The temperature in Lake Michigan has 23 degrees during winter. This winter put up mesmerising shows at various places across the country as the temperature dipped below zero degrees.
