|Every fall, and again in the
spring, storms sweep across Lake Michigan slamming into the piers
that jut out into the lake from the eastern shore. Depending on
the direction of the winds, there are sometimes large waves driven
directly into the piers, battering the lighthouses that stand astride
them, and producing spectacular displays of billowing spray. From
late October through December 2004, the wind direction favored large
waves slamming into the pier at South Haven. These images chronicle
several of those storms...
