Peerless Pier

There’s something about piers.  If there is one on a beach it becomes a destination.  Those who like to walk on beaches (remember those old profiles in lonely hearts columns…”I like long walks on the beach…”) seem to always gravitate toward pilings that stretch out over the water.  Kongo likes piers too.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Horizon

The Weekly Photo Challenge this week is Horizon — that special place in space where the earth meets the sky in the distance.  The horizon image above was taken just south of Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California shortly after sunset.  See more horizons at the WordPress Photo Challenge page.

Ailsa’s Travel Theme: Height

This week’s travel theme is height.  Fortunately, Kongo was atop New York’s Top of the Rock yesterday evening and he took this three-frame panorama of Manhattan looking south shortly before sunset.  The Empire State Building is left-center with Freedom Plaza and downtown in the background.  The Hudson River is on the right.  See more height images at Ailsa’s Where’s My Backpack. Travel safe.  Have fun.

Under the Pier

Kongo took this image yesterday under the Scripps Pier in La Jolla, California about 10 minutes past sunset.  He mounted his Canon 7D on a tripod, used a EF 24-105mm f/4L IS USM lens set at f22 for five seconds. Scripps Pier is a private research pier located between La Jolla Shores and Black’s Beach.  It is owned by the Scripps Institute of Oceanography. Travel safe.  Have fun Related articles Ocean Beach Sunset (travel-monkey.me)
