This lighthouse in on Lake Michigan. I liked the B&W version because it accents the beautiful red color of the lighthouse. Here is a brief history of this lighthouse.
Muskegon South Pierhead By Dave Wobser
Completed in 1903, this conical red tower replaced a shore light that had been built in 1852.
The light is at the end of a concrete pier on the south side of the channel that connects Lake Michigan and Muskegon Lake. The tower is cast iron and stands 48 feet tall. The lantern room holds a Fourth Order Fresnel lens that is semi-circular and has a brass reflector panel. The light shines over 180 degrees of the horizon. The U.S. Coast Guard Station Muskegon is located on shore at the base of the pier. The light is located next to Pere Marquette Park on Beach Street, at the end of either Lakeshore Drive or Sherman Boulevard.
Also located in Muskegon, near the lighthouse, is the WWII museum submarine USS Silversides.
