I was out at the beach photographing a sunset, and decided I was STARVING. I had heard there was a reasonably decent Indian place back along the beach so I thought I would go along to try it out. In that part of town, there has been a large concrete pier built, which is a fairly large and ugly concrete edifice.
But, ooooooh, at night time, they light it with the prettiest lights – all different colours, and it even cycles through in a rainbow pattern!
Fortunately the camera and trusty tripod were at hand, so I slogged my way thru the soft sand down to the harder stuff, avoiding the tide which was starting to come back in and setup shop for long exposures.
I got several good images but these are my favourites.
This image I find fascinating because the pier is a very long and very STRAIGHT piece of concrete (which you can see from the images above) But the below image creates the illusion of it being made of fabulous scallops along the side with the different angles of light and shadow. I think its quite groovy 🙂
Quite long exposures, several seconds, so the tripod was a must. Tho I have to remember to turn off the Image Stabilisation in the lens – on exposures this long, I was getting blurry shots til I remembered and turned it off.
I got some lovely shots, got all excited, *didn’t* get wet, saw pretty lights and found out a new thing about this city I didn’t know. I wonder what it looks like at sunrise……
