Lake Michigan Ice Pancakes Lap Against Pier

Waves carrying ice pancakes lapped against a lake pier in Saint Joseph, Michigan, amid sub-freezing temperatures in the Great Lakes state on January 9.

Ice pancakes are created when waves knocking chunks of forming ice knock together. A lip forms as water splashes on the freezing ice plate. This footage by Nathan Voytovick captured the phenomenon. Credit: Nathan Voytovick via Storyful
