This is actually three individual photos I “stitched” together to make a wider, panoramic view.
It’s been awhile since I’ve been able to catch a nice sunrise behind the Algoma lighthouse. When I looked out the window and realized the sky might be cooperative, I packed up and headed out. I got there just in time and get several good images. Watch for more in the future.

I left home by 4:30 to catch the sunrise at Algoma. But, as you can see, the sunrise was not to be seen. Well, not as I was expecting, anyway.

The dark, wispy clouds reminded me of puffs of smoke hanging over the Algoma, Wisconsin lighthouse and pier. This view was photographed last Sunday morning just before the sun emerged from behind the bank of low clouds to rise over Lake Michigan.

This year’s event was added fun because I was joined by a other photographers, sharing tips and techniques. All came away with some great shots.

You can’t beat a well restored antique car to keep a guy’s interest. I love the shine of the brass and the controls on the steering column. I’m convinced, if you stare into the rear-view mirror, before long, you’ll begin to see the past.
I snapped this image at the annual car show that’s held every spring in Algoma, Wisconsin. I’m not sure the make and model of this auto. I should probably take notes while I’m shooting.
This is an image that dates back a few years. I was searching for it on this website and was surprised that I had never posted here. It’s a digitally enhanced version of one of my most popular images – Break of Dawn. (See the original HERE) The original is a wonderful color image. It would be my favorite of the two, but I also like the aged look this one receives from the monochrome and textured effects.

The title not only referrers to ice and snow, but to the pinkish color of the lighthouse as well. Typically, the Algoma lighthouse (or pier light) is a vibrant red. However, an inferior paint, applied a few years ago, has faded to a chalky pink. Thankfully, I’ve heard a fresh coat of paint is planned later this year.
