Lighthouse on Lake Superior

This lighthouse is located near Grant, Michigan on route 41. The snow "bumps" in the foreground are actually chunks of ice under the snow. These bumps are formed when the wind changes direction and the ice near the shore piles up. Often they are many feet tall and they are constantly changing as the wind shifts.

  1. Super shot, Gwendolyn! Some day I'd love to search out all the light houses on the five Great Lakes. The ones in the U.S. - at least around Lake Ontario - are more interesting than the ones in Canada.

  3. Nice shot! I love the lighthouses of Michigan. I grew up in the lower peninsula and always vacation by boat on the west coast of Michigan. I'll have to check out more of you lighthouse photos!

  4. EG Wow and I think alike. I would like to go on a trip around the Great Lakes as well. This is a real nice picture of the lighthouse. If your snow "bumps" are the same as at Presque Isle in Erie, we call them ice dunes.

  9. A friend of mine showed me your blog. Pretty cool. I would like to get at least a picture of all the lighthouses of the lower peninsula some day.
