This is the first stop on the Michigan West Coast Light/Lighthouse Tour. This is the St. Joseph North Pier Light. Look at those waves! The weather caught me by a bit of a surprise. Although it wasn't great weather, when we got to the shore - it was just plain nasty. It was difficult to stand up straight. In the original shot, the buildings were on an angle that had to be corrected. I took a number of shots at this location, trying to get some wave action. I walked on the pier about half way to the rear light - and that was enough. there was no ice, but the wind had the potential to knock one over. I figured if the spray was cold, going swimming would not be any warmer.
