__02/26/11__ Ferris Wheel
Yesterday it rained, and today it was really cold, about 45 degrees when I took this shot at the Santa Monica Pier. I had it in my head that I wanted to take a pier photo today, and my wife was kind enough to walk down here with me after we got some dinner, despite SoCal's version of freezing.
I went for a simple composition with the lights reflecting in the water. I took quite a few shots, since you never know what the lights are going to do next. If there's a lot of action and color changes happening then everything turns white in the final image. I like this shot because the light pattern is interesting, and the nice blue color goes nicely with the yellow lights.
