Sunset lights at Santa Monica Beach

Landscape Photography

Going from Laguna Beach to El Matador Beach and not getting there before sunset, we decided to stop at Santa Monica, spend a night there, and photograph the famous pier located on Santa Monica State Beach. The evening didn't disappoint; minutes after the sun disappeared behind the horizon, the sky filled with beautiful colors reflecting in receding ocean water. The solar-powered, 85 feet in diameter, illuminated by 170,000 LED lights Ferris Wheel and the pier itself helped create an exciting composition.
