Chasing lighthouses around Michigan and Ohio provides an opportunity to make photos of the landscape near and around them. Whitefish Point has a working lighthouse "manned" by the U.S. Coast Guard, and the adjacent beach gathers a lot of driftwood.
Whitefish Point gained fame in 1975, when the ore carrier SS Edmund Fitzgerald sank with all hands, about 20 miles north of this area, during a ferocious early November storm. Gordon Lightfoot wrote a song which immortalized the ship, its crew, and the "gales of November". On this day, the waters were very calm, and the view extended for miles.
