I've visited this lighthouse perhaps 20-30 times, taking photos at dawn, dusk, in the rain, in the winter, at night, etc, etc, etc. I have never taken a photo that I've been happy with. The last time I visited, November of 2007, I took a series of photos that I decided to let sit for some time before editing them. Of those images, I finally found a photo that I like.
Wind Point Lighthouse is located near Racine, WI on Lake Michigan.
