My friend Richard talked me into riding down to Salt Creek to take some shots of him surfing. We didn't have much success but I was able to capture a few shots of random people tearing it up. After that, we headed down to San Clemente and attempted it again. I think he was having an off day but don't tell him I said that. Once again, I was able to get some like totally rad shredders here too. Last of all, I was able to get a shot of my friend waiting for a wave with the sun breaking through the clouds behind him. He's pretty happy with it and I think it made the trip worthwhile.

Santa Monica Pier at Sunset

So it's one of those rare Southern California days where you welcome the month of March with 80 degree temperatures and packed beaches. I decided that I'd take advantage of it and head to the beach to shoot a sunset. I chose the Santa Monica Pier since I haven't photographed it the way I want. I was hoping for a much more colorful sunset but it was rather blah, so I waited until the later stages of twilight and captured this one. I'll go back in the summer to see if I can capture some reds, yellows and oranges in the sky.
