Redondo Beach Pier

The different beach cities all along the coast of California all seem to have their own little vibe. And Redondo Beach is no different. 

For this shot there was a thick marine layer blocking most of the sun. A few minutes after this the light from the sun was pretty much gone even though the sun was still a good 15 minutes from setting. Luckily the Redondo Beach Pier has a lot of great and interesting areas with nice lighting so night photography there can be fun.

This is one of my earliest HDR photos and also one of my most successful in terms of social shares and sales. it's a three shot bracketed HDR photo taken on the Canon 5Dmkii using my Rokinon 14mm f2.8 lens.

Redondo Beach PierThis pier is an interesting design, it's not like most that jet straight out. This one loops around and reconnects to the beach. It use to be larger but fires once burned it down and it has since been rebuilt.Read more about the Redondo Beach Pier at
