Marblehead Lighthouse

We were at Lake Erie over the weekend and, while there, visited one of our favorite places up there, Marblehead Lighthouse.

The weather was beautiful and there was lots of activity in and on the water.


I had fun taking shots of the waves splashing on the rocks. To get these shots, I focused on the rock where the splashes were occurring and then set focus to manual so that the camera would not be trying to focus on the splashing water. I put the camera on shutter priority at 1/320 sec to freeze the splash. I could have gone for an even faster shutter speed by using a higher ISO, but decided that 1/320 was fast enough and ISO 100 would give me the best resolution. What do you think? Right decision?

Brenda took this shot of me photographing the splashes. I was glad when that guy realized what I was doing and left.DSC_0134
