Heaven’s Lake

Lake, Fishing, Clouds, Sky, Lake Michigan
This is an early morning view of Lake Michigan – taken from the shore at Algoma, WI.  I was there to photograph the lighthouse at sunrise.  There were a few boats trolling close by and the opening in the clouds caught my eye.

Heading for Open Water

Fishing Boat, Ice, Cold, Winter, Sunrise, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Lake Michigan
A commercial fishing boat (the Oliver H. Smith) breaks its way through the ice of the Kewaunee, Wisconsin harbor on their way to the open waters of Lake Michigan. 

The ice in the harbor was thick enough to make getting out a challenge and it took quite a while for the boat to break through.  It would push and crunch its way into the ice, traveling 20 or 30 feet at a time before it would be halted.  Then it would back up and take another run at it…for the next 20 or 30 feet…back up and repeat until it finally got to open water. This shot shows it clear of the solid ice, heading out of the harbor.   I’ve included a short video of the struggle below.

The Oliver H. Smith, is a commercial fishing boat built in 1944 at Kewaunee Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. during World War II.  It was purchased in 1999 and is operated by Lafond’s Fish Market in Kewaunee.

Fishing Light

Full Moon, Lighthouse, Kewaunee, Wisconsin, Night, Evening, Lake Michigan

The full moon and lighthouse presented a dramatic backdrop for a couple preparing to fish off the pier at Kewaunee, Wisconsin. When ready, they would cast a seine net over the side and illuminate the surface of the water with their lantern, hoping to attract small Lake Michigan fish – smelt.

The evening was much darker than it appears in this image and I was a lot farther away than one would think at first glance. I was on shore which put the lighthouse about 750 feet away.  The moon had to be at least three or four times that far. 😉

Sentinels – Fishing in the Fog

Monochrome, Fishing, Fishermen, Lake Michigan, Algoma, WI, B&W, Pier

Like sentinels with bayonets drawn, two fishermen are on high alert, ready for the bite.  These stalwart anglers are fishing for salmon in the early morning fog.  Their lures are plying the waters of Lake Michigan, off the pier at Algoma, Wisconsin.

Kewaunee Pier Silhouette

Fishermen gathering on the pier at Kewaunee, Wisconsin is a common scene each fall.  This was an early morning shot, just after sunrise.  The sun is rising above Lake Michigan, directly behind the lighthouse.  This shot was taken from the beach.

Sunrise Pier Fishermen

The Kewaunee Lighthouse is situated at the end of a very long pier that stretches out into Lake Michigan.  It is a very popular spot for fishermen. Behind these group of early morning anglers, the powerful sun begins its ascent.

If you look closely, you’ll notice a small boat in the very bottom right corner.

Solar Power

Algoma, Wisconsin, Lighthouse, Sunrise, Photography, Photo, Boat, Charter Fishing, Lake Michigan

The sun is an impressive force as it rises above the Lake Michigan horizon beyond the lighthouse at Algoma, Wisconsin.

The charter fishing boat “Cook’s Catch II” is the boat you see at the mouth of the harbor.

This is one of my favorite photographic targets – a lighthouse at sunrise.

Fishermen by the Lighthouse

You know me. I’m a sucker for a sunrise…with a lighthouse…and a few clouds to add interest. The fishermen on the pier is the cherry on top.

The pier at Kewaunee, Wisconsin is a popular spot with fishermen during the fall salmon run. This was an early morning, the sun rising behind the Kewaunee lighthouse.
