I think this was day 2 and many hours after leaving the Soo locks.. as we where approaching Lake Michigan the sun came out just in time to get out on deck and take some photos of the Round Island Lighthouse and the Mackinaw Bridge (photo for another day)

I had to google this area to find the name and location of this lighhouse.. so below is some information I found.....

Below was taken from… www.boatnerd.com
Built in 1895-96, the three-story brick structure is painted red on the bottom level and the upper stories are white. The 53-foot red brick tower rises out of the northwest corner. A black six-sided lantern tops the tower. In 1996 a modern 300 mm solar powered light was installed in the tower.
The light marked the Northern Passage through the Straits of Mackinaw which is used by ships traveling between Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, and the St. Mary's River to Lake Superior.
The original privy and oil house remain. The light was automated in 1924 and abandoned in 1974, when the modern Round Island Passage Light was put into operation. The lighthouse was transferred to the U.S. Forest Service in 1958.
High water levels in the early 1970’s washed away part of the foundation, but this has been restored in recent years by a group led by the Great Lakes Lighthouse Keeper’s Association.
The lighthouse was featured in the 1982 movie “Somewhere In Time”.
Located on a sandy point of Round Island, in the Straits of Mackinac, facing Mackinac Island. Close up views are provided from any of the ferries running between Mackinac City and Mackinac Island.

Bonjour Tricia,
a pallet of splendid colors is revealed under my eyes, blue, white, green and the red of the headlight in central point.
Total harmony with the setting sun, which seems to lick the coast in curve.
Cheer! for this captured moment.
Regards, Corinne

Beautiful view of the place. Excellent composition.
In my opinion, could be just a bit sharper.
But still an amazing view

Hi Tricia,
What a fascinating place, the bright red and white balances the green forest. Nice to see the "Old Glory" fluttering in the breeze, well caught.
PS, thanks for your comment on P'boo 2

I like the composition and the combination of colours. A very vivid picture !



Nice seascape/beach shot - composition particularly works well with the lighthouse jutting out into the water. Colours in the sky and water are very calming and contrast superbly with the red of the bulding.
Thanks for sharing
