The Holland Harbor Light, a.k.a. Big Red, is one of my all-time favorite lighthouses (and judging from the number of photos I see of it, it's a favorite of lots of other folks as well). In part, that's because it's my favorite color, but the western coast of Michigan also is one of my favorite places to visit. The lighthouse stands at the entrance of a channel that connects Lake Macatawa and Lake Michigan. Happy Hump Day, everyone!

How beautiful Monnie! It's been years for me too! The last time I was in Michigan was when I was in junior high.

You have framed this lighthouse beautifully with the tree and sand. The sky provides a wonderful backdrop.

A fabulous capture of Big Red, Monnie! Love your POV and composition - I am one of those who has been there and shot this but from the other side. It's a fantastic lighthouse.
