Ocean Whispers

Ellen Browning Scripps Memorial Pier,La Jolla, CA

I captured this image about 20 min before sunrise. Using a long exposure I wanted to create an image that was more subtle in tones and give it a calming feeling. The modern Scripps Pier was built in 1988, replacing the original pier built in 1916 with funds provided by its namesake patron, and is considered one of the world's largest research piers. Data on ocean conditions and plankton taken from the pier provide an unparalleled source of information on changes in the coastal Pacific Ocean. Photo © copyright by Nick Selway.
