The Pier
Oceanside, California
September 1, 2012

It's amazing what a different point of view can do for a photo.  The above shot was taken from a lower angle with a greater zoom.  It makes the pier look as though it is in the midst of raging waters.  The photo below, however, was taken from a wider angle with a side view of the waves.  In this photo, it appears as though the water is actually quite calm.  The truth lies somewhere in the middle: the waves were larger than they appear below and were actually crashing into the pier, but they were  definitely not raging.

I really like the top one. I think it is very dramatic.
