Lake Michigan is by far one of the best places to go and test your new professional camera! The lake offers breathtaking views and a huge variety of sceneries! Chances are that you would not be disappointed regardless of which time of the year you choose to visit. It is one of the five Great Lakes, but the other four share borders with Canada while Lake Michigan belongs to the U.S. only. It covers more than 22,000 square miles. During most of this winter season the lake remained completely frozen, but as the weather began getting warmer and warmer, this was surely about to change, and it did! The flowing water under the surface layer of ice started applying pressure and it shattered in a way that words cannot describe! Thankfully, there are many photos we can share and the list below contains some of the best ones!
