Pentwater Pier Lights

April 12, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

On a whim, last autumn I decided to attempt to get sunset shots with the Pentwater Pier Lights in silhouette. Unfortunately, the clouds had become pretty thick, with no break to let the sun peek through. Thus, that original whim was rowed out into Lake Michigan and unceremoniously dumped overboard with an anchor attached! Better luck next time, I guess.

Despite my disappointment, I stuck around, anyway, and figured I'd just try out different compositions that I could use some day in the future when the conditions might be a little more favorable. When I loaded the images into Lightroom and started reviewing them, I thought they might stand out better as black and white images, so I ran them through Nik Silver Effex to see what I could get. Here are two of the better images that I captured that night:
