Lights Out

The Lighthouse in St. Joseph, MI in the thick spring fog.

Where's the light?
Your guess is as good as mine.
It only shines at night.
The fog horn works, though!

Tones and colors adjusted in Lightroom.
Building maintenance done in Photoshop.

This community icon and Great Lakes treasure badly needs a facelift!
Some paint and concrete patching would do it wonders.
I took out all the rusty spots, but left the discoloration under the panels
intentionally to show the weathered workhouse that it is.

Wonderful comp and capture and info Michelle! If the light only shines at night doesn't that defeat the true purpose of a light? Excellent work!! Jeff
