Split Rock Lighthouse - The Annual Lighting to Commemorate the Loss of the Edmund Fitzgerald
Each year, Split Rock Lighthouse is lit on the anniversary of the wreck of the steamer Edmund Fitzgerald. The Fitzgerald was lost with all hands during a terrible storm on Lake Superior on November 10, 1975.
The weather was awful for the lighting. It was raining. It was windy. It was cold. There were 5 foot waves crashing into the shore. I stayed long enough to shoot just a couple of photos and then headed for the hotel to enjoy a nice pool and some warm pizza with my wife and kids.
