Along the western coast of Michigan are many beautiful lighthouses. One of my favorites is a historic red brick lighthouse called Little Sable Point.
This lighthouse was opened in 1874 and stands 115 feet tall. Originally the tower had a keepers house that was attached by a walkway, but this keepers house was torn down after electrical power was brought to the lighthouse and a constant keeper was no longer necessary.
Today the beautiful lighthouse is now open to visitors who want to climb the 139 cast iron steps to the top.
I visited the lighthouse one morning before the lighthouse was open and walked around the ground photographing the lighthouse from various angles. I really enjoyed the views of the lighthouse among the sand dunes on the coast.
I was able to take some unusual photos when I noticed the sun was rising just behind the light. Here is one of the resulting photos.
