I grew up surfing at this spot. When I got older, the lights on the pier made it our favorite place to surf in the evenings after work.

You did an excellent job with this photo! It should have won a ribbon.

Mike, that's too funny that Barry thought this was one of my images. Barry was a teammate of mine in the WPL (World Photography League) here on DPC, so he knows my style. When I saw your photo, I thought, "hmmm...when did I take that?" LOL! At any rate, that's an excellent photo!

Nice warm tones and just amazes me when someone is able to catch the light coming through objects and singling it out. Nicely done.

Les (21.gif AperturePriority) - This should complete your PB list with a clean sweep of this location. :-) Good luck. One of my top picks in this challenge with this wonderful capture.

Hmmm...wait a minute, this could be Jimmy (21.gif SJCarter) also. Then neither one. :-/ Well, WHOEVER took this photo, you did a very nice job with it. :-)
