"Breathe" - Scripps Pier, La Jolla Landscape Photography by David Christopher
"Breathe" - Scripps Pier is one of my favorite locations to shoot. As a child, it also used to be one of my favorite beaches to visit. The pier itself is a work of art, with it's symmetrical concrete columns and pristine construction. This image was captured as a storm blew out to sea. The air was pristine and a deep emerald blue. The overall feeling was one of peace. In this particular capture, a cloud (or several), floated over the pier and shadowed it, making it appear black instead of it's usual white/gray color. Truly a rare catch and one of my all time favorite images.
"Gateway", the sister image to this is one, happened moments after this image was captured. It can be viewed here:
