Recently Added Images Piers of Seal Beach and Huntington Beach

Seal Beach Pier in Seal Beach, California - I captured the images of Seal Beach Pier at sunset, highlighting a brilliant orange glow. Seal Beach Pier is located above the Pacific Ocean in Seal Beach. You will find it on Ocean Ave. where Main Street comes to a dead-end. It takes five or ten minutes to walk to the end of the pier and back, and along the way you will discover scenic vistas, a wind that can blow your hat off if it's not secured, and a restaurant at the end with indoor seating and ocean views. Unfortunately, Ruby's Restaurant at the end of pier burnt down May 23, 2016 and has not been rebuilt.
Huntington Beach Pier, California - I captured the images of this pier at sunset from two different locations and angles highlighting the dazzling oranges and yellows of light. Measuring 1,850 feet in length, the iconic Huntington Beach Pier is one of the longest piers on the West Coast. Jutting out into the Pacific Ocean at the intersection of Main Street and Pacific Coast Highway, it symbolizes the heart of Huntington Beach and is the most photographed spot in town. The pier and the city came into existence together in 1904, and thanks to historic surfing demonstrations by legendary Hawaiian watermen George Freeth and Duke Kahanamoku, this landmark is an integral part of Huntington Beach surfing lore. Rebuilt after two storms in the 1980s, the pier is all about simple pleasures.
