St. Joseph Lighthouse Summer Afterglow

I had met up with a photographer friend in St. Joseph for dinner at a favorite local Italian restaurant. Afterward, we headed to Tiscornia Beach to shoot the lighthouse at sunset. There weren’t any clouds in the sky, so we weren’t expecting much in the way of exciting colors. In warmer weather, there’s also a plethora of people walking the pier or hanging out on the pier, which can detract from a “clean” image. As it turned out, however, there was enough haze in the air that we were treated to a nice warm glow and a nice sunset. There were still a lot of people on the pier, though. As I usually do, though, I waited several minutes after sunset for the lighthouse lights to turn on. A long exposure allowed me to catch both lights on and the effect also tends to “flatten” the water, which was already calm. At that time, all the typical walkers and sunset watchers had left the pier. Only a couple of people fishing at the end of the pier were left. As you can tell, the water level in Lake Michigan was quite high. It almost looks like the pier is barely above water!
