Lighthouse

Sudden Outburst

Lighthouse, Algoma, WI, Sunrise, Sunburst, Lake Michigan
I had the opportunity to capture a sunrise in Algoma last Saturday. Low clouds couldn’t hold back the morning sun as it rose over Lake Michigan, beyond the lighthouse and pier.

There have been few days, recently, where the sky hasn’t been overcast and grey. There have been fewer days when I’ve had the time to get out and shoot.

This is an HDR image – where I combined five different exposures of the same shot to provide a greater dynamic range.

Orange Overhead

Sunset, Lighthouse, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, Sea Side, Orange, Clouds
As a photographer, I’m always on the hunt for those elusive, magical moments where the rising (or setting) sun collaborates with interesting cloud formations to paint the landscape with vivid color.  This was one of those moments at the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Those familiar with my work know that I feature this lighthouse often. It’s because I live just a couple of miles away. It’s close enough that if I’m up before sunrise, I can look out my window to see if the sky  and sun are going to cooperate. If the pre-sunrise sky is showing promise, and I have the time, I can grab my camera and be on the shore in a few minutes. The sky, itself is beautiful, but setting a lighthouse in the foreground makes for a much more interesting scene.

Preview of Coming Attractions

Lighthouse, Algoma, Sunrise, Sunset, Wisconsin, Beauty, Landscape
The true magic happens just before the sun breaks the horizon. It usually only lasts a few moments, but it’s worth the effort to catch it. This magical moment arrived behind the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier, on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Lakeside Landscaping

Lake Michigan, Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Grass, Reflection
In an early morning outing I captured the sun rising over Lake Michigan and the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse and pier. Normally I shoot the lighthouse sunrises from the edge of the water, on the beach.  For this shot, I moved back into the grassy area beyond the sand.

I love looking at the detail in the plant life.  You can see more detail in the larger version by clicking on the photo.

Reticent

Sunrise, Blue, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, WI, Lake Michigan
The sun seemed a bit reticent as it made it’s appearance behind the lighthouse and pier at Kewaunee, WI – on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

I named this, “Reticent,” because the sun exhibited qualities of the word:  restrained in expression, presentation or appearance.

Heaven Above

Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Wisconsin, Lake Michigan, Clouds, Sky
The sky was glorious the morning I captured this image. It was shortly after sunrise and the low angle of the sun was only lighting up certain areas of the sky.

This is the Kewaunee, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

Alternate Reality

Lighthouse, Colorful, Sunrise, Lake Michigan, Kewaunee, WI, Wisconsin, Rocks
The over saturated effect in this image of the Kewaunee, WI lighthouse gives it an other-worldly feel. Kewaunee is located on the western shore of Lake Michigan.

This is a stylistic experiment for me. Every now and then, I try something totally out of my normal box. I like this image…but I’m not sure I’d like a lot of it.

Guarding the Peace

Lighthouse, Algoma, WI, Silhouette, Sunrise, Lake Michigan
On a very peaceful morning, the Algoma, WI lighthouse stands at the harbor entrance, watching over a peaceful Lake Michigan at sunrise.

The early morning clouds and contrails created an interesting backdrop for the lighthouse.  In fact, almost too busy.  What do you think?
