Pentwater Pier Light

Back to the West Coast (Of Michigan) trip - this is the Pentwater South Pier Light.  The directions we had were for the other side of the canal - the fog horn side.  As this is more of a Spartan design, if I couldn't get close to one - this was it.  In fact, getting close to the fog horn side was interesting.  The Fog Horn itself is very non-descript, just a white tower with a green stripe.  I didn't know what these were until I saw the noise warning.  Me, in the age of GPS, figured that for horns were no longer necessary.
This shot is almost into the sun.  Being on the north end shooting south - well you do the math.  You can see the glare on the water.  In the original shot, the light structure is completely dark and the sky wasn't much to work with.  It turned out OK.
