Seeing red #4

This is the Sturgeon Bay Ship Canal Lighthouse - another candidate for the red rule of photography. It sits on a pier that juts out into Lake Michigan. It teams up with a light tower that sits one hundred yards or so behind it to form a set of range lights that guide boats safely into the canal at night.

This was taken late in the day from a city park adjacent to the piers. I set the camera low on the tripod to catch the expanse of rolling waters, which, along with the sky, also serve to highlight the red structure.

I think the strength of the blur is a little too much for me, but I really love the composition and colours. Lovely golden sunlight! :)

jem, I knew I was pushing it a bit with the blur, but the photo wasn't working for me otherwise.

Congratulations on your graduation, by the way!
