I'll admit....I am fascinated with piers. It doesn't matter the size, shape, color or location, I simply love photographing piers. The image below was made on Manhattan Beach in California in the late afternoon as the sun was setting. I took a bunch of shots where I set up alongside of the pier but my favorites, by far, were the ones captured underneath. I generally avoid symmetrical compositions but this is one of those instances where symmetry is a must. The photograph below is from that afternoon of shooting. I really like the ethereal glow of the sun against the supports of the pier and how it highlights the texture of the columns.
