And a BEAUTIFUL DAWN IT IS. Could not have asked for better clouds.
Have always wondered why men insist in build on these piers ?

Happy Shooting

Of COURSE it's a favorite. It's the awesome clarity and polished mirror smoothness...and everything else that makes this NOT your everyday pier shot.

A winner, Alan.

Michelle (as always) put it perfectly - I'll happily ditto everything she said and add my Fave to your growing pile of them...this is magnificent - both the capture and your wonderful technical expertise that made it the winner it's going to be.
