Huntington Beach Pier at Sunset

When I left the Wordcamp OC “Mission Accomplished” Get Together early, my hope was to find a spot just South of the Huntington Beach Pier, set up my tripod and try get a few shots of the Southern California icon backlit against the setting sun. It was a nice plan.

When I arrived, I found a throng of humans so thick, parking was almost impossible and the time it took to find a spot caused me to not be able to get to that kind of spot. Apparently this is what summer is like in Orange County.

So… This is the photo I was left with. 🙂

If there are multiple photos in this post, the following EXIF data is for the first photo only:

  1. That Alpha 6000 has been treating you well my friend.

  2. Thank you. I do love it, the size particularly, but I find myself longing for the a7R II. 🙂
