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. 🙂
