As an added note to the above post concerning South Bass......This is one of a series of photos I took from the top deck of the Middle Bass Island ferry, using a Tamaron 500 zoom.....Being about 40-50 feet above the waterline really helped here, bringing me almost level with the light, which as you can see is on a modarate cliff....This is the best way to get this type of shot ---If you attempt to take photos from the end of the road on South Bass, there are too many trees in the way to get a clean shot, and on the rare times when Ohio State University opens the grounds to the public, there is just not enough room between the light and the cliff to obtain a nice level photo.....

Also take note that the South Bass ferry does NOT pass by anywhere close to this light.......
