Venturing outside the borders of Iowa again. We seem to be doing a lot of that lately. Visited a couple lighthouses in Michigan last week. This one is known as "Big Red", for obvious reasons, and sits at the harbor entrance near Holland, Michigan.
This one is rather unique. I honestly cannot say it is one of my favorites, bit it has a certain charm that is undeniable. It is not what most would think when they think lighthouses.
Missy and I got up early so we could get this one in the morning light. Given that this is on the east side of Lake Michigan we didn't feel that it would look interesting in a sunset silhouette. It would look like a house, not a lighthouse. I'm finding that I enjoy shooting lighthouses more than I thought I would. I'll have to re-visit some of these, and seek out more.
And, yes, it really is that God-awful red.
