This is an early morning edition of the pier light that marks the harbor entrance at Algoma, WI.
If you follow this blog, you’ll notice it’s one of my favorite subjects.
When I take photos, I usually take a lot. Then I load them on to my computer and pick out one or two that I like and share them. All the other images from that day are still on my computer. When things are slow – photography wise – I’ll look through some of those photos I passed on the first time around and see if there’s something worth bringing out.
This photograph is one taken in 2009 using my old Kodak EasyShare DX7590. It is the Kewaunee Lighthouse. The lighthouse is actually a supporting actor. I think the clouds are the real star and makes this image a keeper for me. The flock of birds provide a nice accent.
As I often do with photos that don’t quite dazzle me on their own, I added a digital effect to this one using a Photoshop filter.

I had to run an errand to the nearest town, Kewaunee, WI – on the shore of Lake Michigan. I kept an eye open for something to photograph. Not much caught my eye so I stopped by the beach and experimented with some night photography, trying a variety of camera settings.
This is a view of the Kewaunee lighthouse. The lighthouse light overpowers the image, not leaving much else. Still, something about the image appeals to me. I really like the red of the navigational light on the north pier, across the harbor from the lighthouse. I added a slight texture to give it character.
So, what do you think? Worthwhile image, or no. Leave a comment with your thoughts.
