temple of the sun (scripps pier, la jolla)

    Newer Older


    I decided to process another old photo while I wait for my beloved camera to be fixed.
    Please view this one large to see the detail towards the end of the pier!

    Taken from a balcony that overlooks Scripps Pier in La Jolla during a slightly over cast evening. The sun managed to find a crease in the clouds and the rays broke through for a fleeting moment. I'm very lucky to get the sunstar right over the end of the pier like this.

      I'm not sure about that light being so close to the right edge. Everything else is fantastic. One of the best I've seen of Scripps. Hope you get your camera back soon. Seems like it has been a long time... and if it seems that way to me, it probably seems like an eternity to you.

      I swear you're inside my head Scott! Most of my internal comp issues, you manage to voice. I thought about that light too and might clone it out some day if it ever gets printed. I'll have to see how it looks in a mockup with a frame/matte.
