Lighthouse Reflection

Thanks to spunwithtears for choosing this as a favorite.
Okay. So I was crazy enough to go back down and take more shots of the awesome wave action on Lake Superior. Although the National Weather Service said the winds would die down a bit, the waves were still rather impressive -- even reduced from about 14-17 feet to "only" (ONLY?!) around 11-14 feet. They looked bigger to me yesterday than they did the day before. In fact, in a couple of places where I stood with my camera on Friday, I couldn't even get to yesterday -- unless I wanted the water to grab my feet from under me. I'm not THAT crazy.
Of all of the shots I managed to get yesterday, I think this one is my favorite. I didn't even notice the sun shining on the lighthouse or the lighthouse's reflection until I tranferred the photos to my computer. Besides, you're probably sick of seeing photos of Lake Superior's might and power...as awe-inspring as that may be. ;^) Personally, I never tire of it.

Yes! The reflection really tops off this shot, even if it is on the bottom. :) Seriously, nicely framed. Love the red.
