Here we are at a familiar place to some of you. The historic Point Iroquois Light Station, in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. I had just walked up to the lighthouse and started to get into a position that looked like a nice angle to me, when all of a sudden I heard the sound of a prop plane, and within an instant it was in my frame. I took a quick shot, the one you see here, then angled to get one of the place by itself. As the lens I was using wasn’t much of a telephoto, the plane didn’t come out as I would have liked it to.
Maybe some of you may know what aircraft it is by the shape. I was really more interested in this historic lighthouse though! The image here was taken in mid September. I went back again in early October and got a late autumn photo, which I will try to bring at a later date with all the fall foliage!!
The beauty of this lighthouse makes it one of my favorites along Lake Superior. The surrounding area with its beautiful lakes and forests are another plus!!

Wow, Rachel, what awesome timing you have here on this one!! The old adage, timing is everything sure does ring true here! Love the old architecture and romance of the lighthouse and that plane just adds a wonderful touch!
Hi Toad!! Thanks very much for all of your wonderful words!! This is a beautiful lighthouse, you’d love it!! 🙂
Lovely shot. The plane, BTW, is a C-130 Hercules.
