Photo taken of the Marblehead Lighthouse located in Marblehead, Ohio. Currently the oldest working on Lake Erie. This was located in my old hometown. No adjustments other than cropping.

Stan, Dan, Donna, Jordi, Leanne, Colette, Cindy, K, Marcie, Mel, Evy, Sharon & C.J.,

Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments. I took well over 300 photos that day of our local lighthouse when we lived back on Lake Erie. It was a great day and I spent it with a very close friend of mine (who got me started in Photography, thank you Ellis!!). I have plenty more I hope to share as the time allows. #1094776
