Marblehead Light, OH

Marblehead Light, OH

Sometimes there is no choice but the straight on tourist shot of the famous landmark. Time is limited. The vantage points are limited by the park management. Essentially you “stand here and take your shot.” The weather and the light are what they are. So you make the most of it. And maybe plan to come back for better light and weather…if you life allows.

This is Marblehead Light, in Marblehead OH, out on the peninsula that juts out into Lake Erie above Sandusky.

Sony DSC H50 at 31mm equivalent. F5.6 @ 1/800 @ ISO 100. Programed auto. -.7EV exposure compensation.

A bit of Recovery in Lightroom for the sky. Added Clarity and Vibrance in the Presence Panel. Sharpen landscape preset.

From Lakeside OH.
