On the Redondo Beach Pier there are these very strange shades above each of the seats. From a distance it makes the pier look as though it has some sort of wings. Up close it just looks cool. The green lighting adds a great contrast to the purple sky. An excellent subject for some night HDR beach photography.
Today is also the Canon 5dmkii's fourth birthday. It's amazing how awesome this camera was when it came out. There still isn't much out there that is significantly better and that's after four years.
