Michigan Lake – North America

Updated on January 31, 2016

Lake Michigan

No doubt the images are impressive but the wonder is exactly how they were created.

It is a stunning striped Iceberg Lake Michigan in North America. Sometimes it has stripes, formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions of melting.

When an iceberg drops into the lake, a layer of water of course, freezes at the bottom. If this is rich in algae, can form a green stripe. Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment, which took them when the ice sheet dropped in to the lake.

The blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet fills up with melt water and freezes so quickly that there is no form of this bubble.

Nature is amazing!

The water froze the moment the wave broke through the ice. This icy weather has created this stunning result in recent decades. The water freezes when it comes into contact with air. The water temperature is already some degrees below zero.

There are not enough words to describe this phenomenon, just look only how the wave froze in the air!

      No, I actually have not seen it as in these photographs. I have walked out on it many times on the ice, but it was relatively flat.
