Shot with an HP315 digital camera mounted on a tripod. The light was a normal sunny day at the beach. I wanted to try and capture the color, texture, and contrast that is found under the pier.

Under the pier is a place that few people really take notice of the wonderful mix of all three of these elements. #1620

Hi Paul,
I love it. This photo has a surreal quality that makes the ordinary subject seem dreamy and abstract--great shot. #2442

Something about this strikes me deep inside. It hit an emotion that I can't quite describe, bordering on loneliness and independance. Thank you. #2447

Yeah, when I was taking the shots under the pier that day, I was dodging the incoming waves so much that I really didn't see how cool it came out until I saw them on my computer!

A lot of the time, that's just the way it is with me, I don't really see what I've got until I have downloaded and seen what I did.

Thanks for the comments! #2448
