Marblehead lighthouse…located at the entrance to Sandusky Bay in Marblehead State Park…on the shores of western Lake Erie near Port Clinton, Ohio (USA)…established in 1821…the longest continuously operating lighthouse on the Great Lakes.

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.

    This is so beautiful, Jack! I have never seen waves like this on a lake. I like the perspective, too. Very very nice!
    I like your new profile pic, too.

  • I have photographed Lake Erie (and Marblehead) many, many times, but I had never seen it with waves like this before. I’m glad you like it. Comment appreciated!!! (Also glad you noticed the profile shot…thanks!)
