Glasslike, spiked ice shards dot the shore of Lake Michigan in South Haven in eastern Michigan giving the shoreline an otherworldly appearance.
The movement of the water under the frozen lake pushed the ice up, creating the weird formations and patterns along the city’s pier this week, according to MLive.

The lake may look frozen, but this is the time of year when the lake ice is extremely unstable, due to weather conditions.
The U.S. Coast Guard is warning people not to risk going out on it.
"No ice is safe ice, especially this time of year," Grant Heffner, of the U.S. Coast Guard, told MLive.
"The ice is certainly deteriorating and breaking up," Heffner said.
