I have only visited the Michigan City East Pierhead Light two times, so far. I already posted an image from earlier this year. These images were both taken on the same cold, November morning last year. The first shows the lighthouse building framed by the catwak:
The second image was taken from the beach, and shows just how rough Lake Michigan can get at times:
When creating images like this, I like to get lots of shots, trying to time them for the most dramtic splashes, or the most interesting wave patterns. It's a little bit of an art, and a lot of luck, patience, and persistence. Waves just have this indelible habit of being unpredicatble, so taking lots of images allows me to choose one or two that have a bit more "umph".
