St. Joseph North Pier Light

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.
