Someone Call a Plumber

San Clemente Pier is a 1,296-foot long pleasure pier featuring spectacular Pacific Ocean views. In addition to offering free fishing, the pier has indoor/outdoor restaurant dining and offers a wonderful location to watch surfing competitions, sports activities and the beach fun.

This is the view from underneath the pier. The four colorful items on the huge drainage pipe are 8×10 graffiti sketches. Why they were attached to the pipe in a mystery – perhaps a staging area for after dark work? I was amazed by the maze of wires, conduits, pipes servicing the above establishments. www.kerstenbeck.com

Light Rays from sunset

Was a spectacular sunset where you drive around to find the perfect spot for a foreground and then realize you drove to long and are going to miss everything….so you run as fast as you can across the greens and photograph a tree on a golf course as a last ditch effort to make up for your indecisiveness.

I was definitely going for a more surrealistic look on this, while still retaining all the great details in the scene. Nine exposures +/-1EV merged in Photomatix Pro 4, with lots of love from Nik Software Color Efex Pro and DFine 2.
