Photo Friday: Chasing Lake Michigan waves

  • Twenty foot waves pound a Lake Michigan lighthouse, spraying water in a colorful burst.

Chicago environmental and landscape photographer Tom Gill recently captured 20-foot waves driven by winds gusting to 30 miles per hour on Lake Michigan.

Check out more of Gill’s work and the story of this series of power and light on his Blog and Facebook page.

This animated gif nicely illustrates the waves crashing to heights that exceed the lighthouse.
