The Gordon Lightfoot song, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" contains a line,

"...when the storms of November come early..."

They did October 16th this year! The waves produced some of the largest clouds of spray that this photographer has ever seen thrown up at St Joseph! What a thrill to be able to photograph it!

I also had the privledge of being invited to contribute this wave animation for use in a television special on the History Channel that aired nationally for the first time on Friday, November 25th. The program was one of a series of five programs done by Actuality Productions; the production in which this animation was incorporated was titled:

"The Big Build - Lighthouse."
