Suzanne... Thanks for the little preview of what I'm going to see (and take photos of) in November later this year when my family on I take a trip out that way. We're all looking forward to it.

Nice work! Almost makes me want to go to Wisconsin... ALMOST!

Old Baileys Light looks like a prime candidate for a refurb. That would look great with a lit bird cage.

I look at all those pictures and I can picture the exact spot where you took the pictures. I am jealous :mrgreen:, I was trying to go up there last weekend and had a family party. By the time I make it up there all the snow will be gone :( .

I would love to get to the Great Lakes for the winter.
You're lucky to be there all year round.
You took great shots. I think of these types of shots often.
I hope we get serious snow here in NJ soon.

Nice collection of images. One thing that I always find interesting is all of the different styles of lights along the lakes. I can't wait to get my chance at photographing them!

Nice photos. Thanks for sharing them Suzanne. I really like Sturgeon Bay North Pierhead and the Cana Island photos. I'd like to see the Door County lighthouses in the winter sometime.

Are you getting lots of snow there? It has been snowing here all day, but it didn't really start to accumulate until late afternoon.

p.s. You should still try to get to the ice caves near Bayfield yet this winter!
