The Oceanside Pier is silhouetted as sunset turns the reflected clouds from yellow to pink to gun metal grey, and finally to black. The lights on the pier flicker slowly to life, then blaze brightly casting shadows on the pier in the dusk. An unusual Western breeze blows against the oncoming waves, creating mist above them visible in the twilight. This is an award winning image honored by AAA's Westways Magazine in their 2015 photo contest.
Beautiful quote by Lola Ridge "you are full of unshaped dreams. You are laden with beginnings...there is hope in you". Background image is Oceanside pier at sunset. Oceanside is 40 miles North of San Diego, California.
