Manhattan Beach Pier by Walt Conklin

Sun setting under the Manhattan Beach Pier late last summer, at this time of the year the sun sets behind the Santa Monica mountains, so if you stand way back with a long lens you can catch the sun setting under the pier. The roundabout at the piers end houses a small aquarium and is the most photographed Pier in the South Bay. I can always find pelicans here looking for a hand out from the daily fishermen.
