Fading Daylight at the Newport Beach Pier

One storm just ended and another one was on the way. So I had to hurry to get pictures before the sun went down and the rain started again. There's some picture noise but it pretty much looked like this when I took the picture. I made it just in time.

  9. I lived in an apartment not far from that pier for about six months so long ago. Walked and walked on the beach every day. My daughter learned to walk on that beach. This photo is gorgeous, the colors are so striking. Wonderful photo.

  11. Intense atmosphere and beautiful colours. My eye is attracted as much to follow the wavy lines of the pier as it is drawn up to the drama in the sky. And the strongest memory will be of the people silhouetted. It is as if they are waiting . . . for the storm?
