His Paul, My wife and I are lovers of old forts and lighthouses. We have visited many from Key West to Maine. We looked and looked at this Lighthouse. The lighthouse in Marblehead MA is one that looks like the all metal one in Sanibel Florida. We thought how did we miss this beauty. Through further research I think this is Marblehead Lighthouse in Marblehead, Ohio? Would have loved to see some clouds in the sky but when traveling you get what you get. could be added. Like it being slightly off center. It hits me that the light house is leaning but I know it is not. Horizon is perfect. Very nice image.   Posted: 10/04/2021 17:05:59

Yes, it was taken in Marblehead, Ohio, on Lake Erie.   Posted: 10/07/2021 22:43:05

A very nice picture of the light house. I agree with Tom, that some clouds are missing. I went into Ps and selected some clouds from the Sky replacement file.   Posted: 10/07/2021 15:17:09

I agree with Tom that the lighthouse is leaning, but it can be corrected in Photoshop.
It's a nice lighthouse and one I've never seen. Must remember to find it the next time I am in the area.   Posted: 10/09/2021 18:24:31

I also agree that the lighthouse is leaning a bit. You can even correct this in Lightroom. If I get to doing a trip around Lake Erie sometime, I must search this one out.   Posted: 10/11/2021 14:33:32

Skewed lighthouse slightly to the right. Measured and remeasured and I think it is straight vertical. Three other lighthouses that are breath taking are Thomas Point Lighthouse in Maryland, Nubble Lighthouse in Maine and Portland Head Lighthouse in Maine. If you can catch Portland Head Lighthouse with s rough stormy sea it is spactullar!   Posted: 10/14/2021 13:42:09

It was already a nice image. But after straitening a bit and the addition of the sky its even a better image.   Posted: 10/17/2021 09:00:22
