Just off the Chicago shoreline, Lake Michigan, one of the five Great Lakes, is a major factor in the city’s weather patterns. The third largest of the Great Lakes and the only one located entirely in the United States, Lake Michigan is technically a large freshwater sea instead of a lake. The massive body of water intensified thunderstorms and adds fuel to them. The photographer who snapped this image had impeccable timing and was able to capture several lightning strikes in the lake in one impressive shot.
