"Breaking Light" Point Betsie Lighthouse Crystalia, Michigan

This shot was taken just as the sun was rising over the dune behind Point Betsie. I was answering a few questions this morning about this photo and It dawned on me that over the years I have never seen another photographer at this lighthouse at this time of the morning. I have read that Point Betise is one of the most photographed Lighthouses in the country,... hmm!
