17 down, none to go! This past Saturday (3/11/17), my girlfriend Alex and I started a lighthouse tour in Michigan continuing work towards my goal to photograph each and every lighthouse surrounding Lake Michigan by the end of 2017. Today we completed that trip with a visit to South Haven, visiting 17 lighthouses in total!

Recapping the trip, here were the 17 lighthouses we visited!

Each lighthouse will be getting its own photo story. I took tons of photos at each lighthouse along with videos and at some, even timelapses! Can’t wait to share more of what I’ve taken on this trip.
