I've been shooting in Santa Monica California this week and it was awesome. The weather was the usual Californian sunshine with the exception of one rainy day which, at this time of year, is to be expected. The break from the prolonged Canadian winter was very welcome and the images flowed freely as I explored the coast between Malibu and Venice. I've got some work to do on post processing now but thought I would share a shot from my first night. I had been down on the beach with the 10 stop ND filter shooting sunset images then, as I made my way back to the pier, I stopped for a couple of shots.
I think the image below captures the light nicely, Pacific Park (the fairground on the pier) brings a plethora of colours to the left of frame and a nice reflection in the mirrored sand of the outgoing waves. The string of lights along the pier then leads us along to the very last of sunset visible on the far right of shot, all in all a very pleasing image from the first day walkabout and well worth sharing.
