Taken on a cloudy,overcast and windy day this summer at the Marblehead lighthouse…in Marblehead State Park…on Lake Erie…in Marblehead, Ohio (USA).

I am a retired high school English teacher living in northeast Ohio with a particular interest in photographing lighthouses. As I write this, I have photographed 184 lighthouses…at least one on each of the Great Lakes plus numerous Atlantic Coast lights from Maine to North Carolina. My primary camera is a Canon Digital Rebel XSi…and I use either a Canon Powershot G12 or a Canon Powershot SX120 as backup.
