The lighthouse in Michigan City, Indiana is something that I've been capturing for quite some time. Last month, a warm winter day created some severe storms over Lake Michigan. I managed to get out to the lighthouse and back before the rains arrived. I did get bumped around by the 40 mph plus winds!!





Since I was the only one around for miles, I decided to climb up onto the catwalk that leads out to the lighthouse. This is off limits of course, but I doubt if the police or Coast Guard wanted to leave the comfort of their offices just to yell at the guy with the camera!!

I really like the drama of the first shot. The color combination is very effective and the approaching wall of the storm is striking.

I like them both......I like the way number two leads you up to the lighthouse. Great cloud shots.

I like the color and drama of the first shot. The second shot along with your description "leads you into temptation!". Just remember I know who you are and I know what you did. Expect a knock on your door tomorrow! :lol::lol:

Lapstrake,

Even though I lived in the Chicago area for almost 5 years I still have a difficult time remembering the ice on the lake. I must have psychologically blocked all of that.

Nice work.

Aloha
