    Ken with the South Manitou Island Lighthouse at sunrise ...
    10-2008

    The original image was pretty dark, so this was an attempt to blend two versions of the same image for a faux hdr image.

    this was from a sunrise series after the relighting of the light ... the light had been dark for over 50 years!

      Love the flow of the sky.
      Is the lighthouse crooked or is it my imagination?
      Horizon is totally level, so perhaps I'm seeing things
