For a week at a time, twice a year, the sun sets in just the right place to align with Scripps Pier at La Jolla Shores. This image was taken on the last day of the week that this sunset would be available in early 2012 as each of the previous days were heavily overcast. Planning and persitance definitely paid off.
A long exposure captures the last of the day's sunset glows behind Scripps Pier at La Jolla Shores. The long exposure helped grab more of the fading light and smothed the waves out to allow for the reflections in the foreground.
