There is a little bit of a beach behind the lighthouse. The ships going from the Soo to Duluth (or other ports on Lake Superior) will pass by Whitefish Point. Normally my timing isn't right to see a ship pass by. That wasn't the case yesterday.
The ship I saw yesterday was the St. Clair and she has appeared on this blog before. Unfortunately, that time I was only able to get a shot of the bow. For this shot, I wanted some of the foreground but I don't think I had the right lens or enough light.
The ship out on the horizon.
For this shot, I laid down on the beach and tried to get the waves as they came up. Again, the foreground is too blurry but I still like the shot.
Another shot out on the horizon. The sun was setting, so I got the pinks in the sky. I had the film speed bumped up a bit though....
A closeup of the pilothouse. Well as close as I could get.
