Full Moon at Split Rock Lighthouse

The full moon during the winter months rises at an azimuth where it comes up from behind the cliff at Split Rock Lighthouse making for a spectacular back-lit scene when viewed  from the Lake Superior shoreline below.
Split Rock Lighthouse was built in 1910 atop a 130 foot cliff. The lighthouse and has stood sentinel over the waters of western Lake Superior for more than 100 years.


  1. I'm sure it's not easy to be an excellent photographer, but you must be very proud when you capture moments like these. Fantastic and thank you!!!

  2. Great pictures. Would you sell copies of them?

  3. Oh for sure. They are all available on my Split Rock Lighthouse Gallery
