May: A Barrier in the Blue Waves
A narrow breakwater jutting out from the eastern shoreline of Illinois divides Lake Michigan and the artificially protected Calumet Harbor.
The section depicted here was built between 1899 and 1902 and spans 4,400 feet before changing course and angling southeast another 6,714 feet, crossing state lines into Indiana. The man-made divide paints a striking color change between the wider waters of Lake Michigan and the relative safety of the harbor.
