"Sunset silhouette" Grand Haven Lighthouse - Grand Haven , Michigan

Via Flickr:
Dozens of people line the pier at Grand Haven to watch this beautiful sunset.
Grand Haven is located on the eastern shore of Lake Michigan at the mouth of the Grand River, for which it is named.

If you want to capture a Michigan Lighthouse with huge waves crashing on it  for a dramatic photograph , this is a great one to do it at.   I took this photo at grand Haven last fall during gale force winds in excess of 60mph.

You can see my complete Michigan Lighthouse slide show  here.
