This is Old Mission Point Light on Michigan's Traverse Bay. It sits exactly between the North Pole and the Equator on the 45th parallel.
Chris & I were on a wine tasting trip with friends and on the way home we stopped to see this light (I LOVE lighthouses.) I crouched down to take this pic & Chris told me not to wast the film. With the sun backlighting the lighthouse he thought it wouldn't turn out (ha, film!) I was confident that my picture would turn out, I am the daughter of a professional photographer, after all.
It did turn out & I love the way it looks. To me it seems like the spirit of God is shining through. I even used it in the header for my other blog Devotional Daze. Check back soon for another Michigan Memory.
