This image was taken while on location to shoot a concert in Vinoy Park, which is directly across the water from the St. Pete Pier. As I waited for the show to begin, I noticed how colorful and bright the pier looked in the late-day sun.

This image was taken in the early morning, before tourist and sunbathers take over the beach. Long shadows cast by the cabanas show that this image was taken just outside the “Golden Hour” time-frame. Although I was on the beach before sunrise, intermittent cloud cover kept things dark until the sun was already above the horizon.
