Happy New Year from Los Angeles! I’ve returned to one of my favorite locations well over a year since my last visit. This evening was a tad chilly, but not chilly enough to keep patrons and photographers from spending some time at the pier! This is a composite image composed of 3 separate frames: two ocean / pier shots shot in close intervals. For the third frame I decided to wait for the pier lights to come on and include them to add a little bit of interest. I hope everyone had a safe and happy new year!
