We don't have the historic and ornate buildings that some of you have. Or the fall colors, the heavily wooded areas, or the rustic fences. There are only 3 reasons for being here: 1) the weather, 2) the ocean and beaches, and 3) the great pier.

I tried to capture all 3 in one shot for you, taken earlier this evening. We've had rain clouds but precious little percipitation.

Looking back the other way you would view the downtown area, where Main Street butts into the entrance to the pier. For a city of 200K, our downtown area is fairly small, and mainly geared to the tourist trade...plus us "locals" who come down for a sidewalk meal or our morning Starbucks.

This was taken a few days ago.

Both shots are quite an accomplishment giving the conditions.

Walter, the first shot is really spectacular. You caught the sun at a really nice angle. I like the way the sun pierces the pier and can be seen reflecting off the water. Outstanding use of lighting.
