Lake Michigan icicles

Who's the best artist of all time?  Claude Monet?  Leonardo Da Vinci?  Bob Ross?  Not quite.  If you're asking me, there's no artist on this planet that can create stunning and breathtaking imagery quite like ole Mother Nature.  Rather than paint brushes and canvases, Mother Nature uses the Earth as her artistic playground and tools like the five elements to completely put all other artists to shame.  And you need to look no further than Lake Michigan in the winter to know what I'm talking about.

As documented by the website Cottage Life, the lighthouses on St. Joseph North Pier on the coast of Lake Michigan freeze over every winter, the frigid waters slamming into the pier and leaving behind icicles like you've never seen before.  Words like majestic and magical suitably describe the annual display, though anyone who knows a thing or two about the works of H.P. Lovecraft would probably also use words like frightening... R'leyh, R'leyh frightening!

The spectactular icicle monster display has become a popular tourist destination, and you can pay a virtual visit to Lake Michigan by checking out some incredible photos below!
