Completed by the U.S.Lighthouse Service in 1910, Split Rock Light Station is one of Minnesota's best known landmarks. Restored to its 1920s
appearance, the lighthouse offers a glimpse of lighthouse life in this remote and spectacular setting. Located on Hwy 61 along the North Shore
of Lake Superior northeast from Duluth, Minnesota. This is one of the few images I have of lighthouses and I just liked the light and the

Kodachrome 64

Lots to like on this lighthouse. I especially like the time of day you chose to take this capture. the low angle of the sun casts a golden hue on the lighthouse and intensifies the vintage details and look of this icon.

Gorgeous light shows off this beautiful lighthouse and its spectacular setting. I would consider a crop to just below the rocks next to the cliff and to just above the tree line. That would preserve the crucial elements of the sky, reduce the empty water and make the cliff and lighthouse itself larger in the frame. Very nicely done.

I like the composition 'as is' also, along with the perspective. And I'm especially attracted to the sepia-like color theme, which indeed gives it a vintage and painterly feel.

Hi Jan.

This is such a beautiful framing of the lighthouse. The choice of tall frame is very good enhancing the height of the cliff from a fine pov. Another excellent Kodachrome result and the warm color is very attractive. Superb shot and very well done indeed.

I like the sense of the manmade lighthouse fighting the elements along with the wild and rugged promontory.
