Photographers catch Lake Michigan waves crashing against Sheboygan lighthouse

Derek Diehl Photography captured this image in Sheboygan during a winter storm, which caused flooding in the Port of Milwaukee.

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Saturday afternoon certainly was a windy one, and photographer Derek Diehl captured images of a wave engulfing a Sheboygan lighthouse.

Diehl says he was taking photos between 1-3 p.m. Saturday, and only had to wait about 20 minutes for the bigger wave sets to hit.

Although it was windy, Diehl adds he had perfect conditions for the photos, with no rain or snow in the area.

Alice Schipper also sent us photos of waves striking the Sheboygan lighthouse and marina January 11 (see below).

According to travelwisconsin.com, the lighthouse is 55' tall.

Alice sent her photos via our Report It! feature at wbay.com/photos.
