I was able to get this shot after continuously trying for close to 20 minutes and I have to say it was worth the struggle. I have gotten quite a few questions about the settings I was using to get a picture like this of the moon so, nevertheless..

If you’ve been watching the news lately, you’ll know that the White Rock pier has been torn in half a huge storm and its future is uncertain. The White Rock pier is my favourite place to photograph so I go down there about 5 days a week for sunrise and sunsets. I am drawn to the pier because it’s a local treasure and historical landmark.
Past: The White Rock pier in 1914 and later rebuilt by the community in the early 1970’s.

The White Rock pier is a local treasure and a popular tourist destination.
There is word that the pier will be rebuilt by late August of 2019. It will cost approximately 6 million. Stay tuned for updates.
The pier has had waves of change this year and only time will tell what its future holds. When will it be reopened? Who will fund it? Will there be a restaurant built again on the pier? Will the daredevil jump?
Every photographer has a couple of their own photos that stand out more than others, as I was going through my photos I noticed a few that really popped out to me. I thought you may like to read some more about how each image comes to life. I decided on a handful of photos to showcase here.
