Folly Beach has the second longest pier on the East Coast, extending more than 1,045 feet into the ocean. It is an awesome structure to photograph, although it is tough to get good colors at sunrise and sunset. The sun rises to the far left, and the sun sets to the far right of the pier. This makes it tough to get any colors to show up in the images. In this one, I was able to pull out some of the colors of sunrise, and make a pleasing image.
Once the sun came up, I focused on photographing the supports of the pier in hopes of making a pleasing B&W image. I really like how this one turned out. The foam around the central post is what really makes the shot.
