Even though the polar vortex has long passed, people are still aware of the destruction it caused. But despite all the issues, the vortex also produced some stunning unintended works of art that we can all appreciate.

The significant temperature decrease has also kept Lake Michigan frozen for much of the winter – and now that spring has arrived. The temperature is beginning to climb, and the ice is finally melting and fracturing, producing a captivating scene that seems almost otherworldly.

Water running beneath the ice pushes the ice sheets to the top, creating distinct patterns. You might be tempted to take some lovely shots, but the US Coast Guard has cautioned visitors to stay away. There is no such thing as “safe ice.”, especially at this time of year,” US Coast Guard BMC Grant Heffner told MLive. “There is no doubt that the ice is deteriorating and breaking apart.”
