The view of Venice City Beach and the northern part of Santa Monica Bay from the Venice Pier.
This is one of the first shots of the night. I was wandering around looking for a spot to shoot the sunset and liked the view from the Venice Pier. I already had my camera on my tripod, so I took a few shots of the coast before moving on. I would like to return to this spot to shoot the coast during twilight.
For this photo I just wanted to make sure to keep detail in both the bright sky and the dark sand, in opposite corners of the photo.
