Thank you for all of your great compliments on this seascape capture. I decided to go to the pier because of all of your inspirational comments here at BetterPhoto. It was stormy all morning but let up a little in the afternoon. I barely made it in time for the sunset. So I waited around for the pier lights to shine. It was the first time I have been there at sunset or at night. It was so beautiful how the lights shined on the ocean, waves of gold!!!

Anyway, thanks again!! Enjoy your weekend!
