Lighthouses

Photographing the Frozen Lighthouse

In fact, in late November of this year, an early arctic weather pattern turned the Midwest cold and windy - the perfect ingredients for iced lighthouses on the Great Lakes. When I arrived at the lighthouse, my expectations were correct. This was the earliest I can remember, where the outer lighthouse in St. Joseph, Michigan was completely covered in ice. As a rule, mid to late December is the typical time for icing -cold, windy, and the lake is still liquid. Any later, and Lake Michigan tends to freeze over, and the splashing and spray are suppressed, so the lighthouses don't ice up.

The first time I saw the ocean I couldn't speak a word. It was in San Francisco and a storm had just let up. The waves were double headers, but to me they seemed thirty feet high. All I could think was how little we matter, followed by these have NEVER stopped moving, not for a second.

"In the USA, there are thousands of lighthouses around the coast here and there is a doomsday list of 46 that are at peril from either erosion or vandalism. ... I just feel like most people that you meet have a memory of one lighthouse or another. They're so evocative and so comforting somehow. It just seems very sad that we would let these slip away."
