Went down to the pier at 6:00 a.m. this morning to catch the sun coming up. Had my tripod and remote cord, so I decided to do an HDR shot. Here's the result.

hi Walter and thanks for sharing the photo, it causes memories to me.

I've been there a lot of times at o'early thirty but then that was more than 30 years ago when we lived in Huntington Beach on Monitor Dr just off Brookhurst and Yorktown, a couple miles up.

I recall you lived in GP, TX before HB.......... we HB b4 Arlington.

I always enjoy seeing your photos, especially your cars and of course around Huntington.

Can the whales still be seen from the pier and do the grunion still run the beach

Thanks for the kind comments, Bob. We've been back (HB) now for a year and a half, and I can't say we miss the summer heat, bugs, etc. Do miss the BBQ, tho. Don't know about seeing whales from the end of the pier, but I know there are plenty of tour boats that will take you out to where they are migrating. Yes, grunion still run.

PS, how about those Red Raiders last night?

Wonderful shot, although I feel somewhat uncomfortable with that "fire/burning" feeling on the left side.

Thanks for sharing,
Th.

Th
I was trying to get the timing just right -- before the ball of sun appeared and before the lights on the pier were turned off (5 minutes later). I wanted the reflection of the pier lights to show in the water. A lot of lighting issues to try and balance.

That's aneye pleasing composition you attained one can expect of you Walter! Aside from its beauty, the cloud formation on the right top corner provides a counter balance to the great mass on thebottom left handside...I wonder if you used the CS3 for the HDR job or ar dedicatedsoftware like DynamicPhoto or Photomatix.
