Journey of a body on this earth

Berkeley Pier


Here are a couple more from the evening I went to the Berkeley Marina with my camera club.  These are of the Berkeley Pier.  Initially I had wanted to do a long exposure but I just wasn’t in the mood to drag my tripod out with me.  It was very windy and I decided I didn’t want my camera crashing over on the pier.  My blog would come to a grinding hault if that happened.  God forbid!  lol

The first image was taken from the parking lot looking at the pier from the side and the second was taken on the pier.  Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Nice, Laura! It’s freeing to ‘lose’ the tripod occasionally 😊.

  2. More gorgeousness (I think I may have just made up a word😉) from Berkeley, Laura! Such amazingly foreboding skies. Both images just ooze the “power” of Mother Nature!

  3. Oh my. Beautiful. Just beautiful, Laura. Very powerful images.

  4. Neat pictures Laura ❤
    captures the scene beautifully!!! ().()

  5. Beautiful captures! Love the first one especially. 🙂

  6. tripod or not these are amazing. I love the skies!!- and the light on the water in the foreground of the first! Brilliant!

  7. I think it was a good decision to lose the tripod for these shots. Using it, you would have lost the power, the impacr, and turned these into no less beautiful but a lot more dreamy images of Mother Nature. Sometimes long exposure can be wrong for a shot. This was such a time.

  8. Two more beautiful shots Laura 😊

  9. I think Both are very good but the leading lines in the second one draw me in and won’t let me go.

  10. Wow! Love the perspective on the second one especially ..

  11. fabulous series.
    (i think i would prefer b&w).
    hope it’s ok to say that?

    • I have a B&W but not of the pier. I was going to do a long exposure of the very long pier from closer to the side, you know those typical pier long exposures but it was just way too windy. I do have a sailing one with the beams of light in B&W. I’ll post that for you. 🙂 You know me and my color though. I’m a color freak!
