149:365 St. Joseph Lighthouse

149:365 St. Joseph Lighthouse, originally uploaded by team.breeze.

We decided to escape the land of no air conditioning and spend the long weekend in St. Joseph, Michigan, about three hours from Indy. The weather was beautiful and the lake was painfully cold. One of our favorite things to do there is walk out to the lighthouse and watch the sunset over the lake.

The beach was quite the photographic challenge for me. I actually didn’t take my camera with me when we were just playing on the beach for fear of ruining it–what with all the sand and sunscreen. (I actually did ruin a camera once by getting sand in it.) Plus it is so bright during the day that exposure was a challenge and it was hard to get good shots. Sunset provided a different set of lighting challenges.

Here’s another sunset shot:
