Buildings of Another Era: the Pointe and the Belleview

This is a photo of the Pointe au Baril light house on Georgian Bay. This is a very special place to me with many a fond memory. In the summer you can climb the tower of the lighthouse tower and look out over the lake, it's a great view :) 

In the distance Belleview Hotel, one of the many hotels built at the end of the 1800s now sits largely abandoned, air travel having put all of the once famous Great Lake hotels out of business by the 1970s. 

Two posts back I put up an image taken from the oposite side of the building and many of you commented on the sky. I had a circular polarizer attached to the camera in both that shot and this one, and shot in RAW format then did a direct conversion with Olympus Software. Lastly I gave the curves a mild tweak and that's that.

Looks very good to me
Very nice. Certainly looks Canadian right away to me in the thumbnail. I love it!
