Crisp Point in Michigan's Upper Peninsula on the coast of Lake Superior between Munising and Whitefish Point is one of the state's most remote and difficult-to-reach light stations, so I made a point of capturing as many photos as I could of it when we finally made it up there on a beautiful sunny day.
This is yet another image from my collection of images taken last summer at Crisp Point.
The lighthouse and visitor center opens from June through October with the hours depending on the availability of volunteer staff. The lighthouse normally closes the rest of the year because the long dirt Luce County Road leading to it is seasonal and remains unplowed during the rest of the year.
This particular image received one of several Third Place prizes for Digital Camera Images in the Assignment category for the September 2016 competition at the Motor City Camera Club.
Check out another winner from my Crisp Point collection that placed first at the Motor City Camera Club in November 2015. It also received an Honorable Mention in competition among the 10-member Greater Detroit Camera Club Council that same month.
Look for a story about Crisp Point and more images from my collection this fall!
