Weekend Reflections - Pier Wall

Click on photos to enlarge!
This is a cement wall alongside the pier at Seal Beach, California USA.
First the colors caught my eye and then the reflections in the wet sand convinced me it was "camera" time.

There is so much beach for play, but some prefer to be up against this wall...hmmm, go figure...

This is a orignial point of view on this urban structure... I love those color : the orange gives an old and abandoned touch to the pic... Great work !

The wet sand gives the reflection an interesting texture...very nice indeed!

I love these shots, particularly the second one with the children playing in the surf. The colors and clarity are great.

I like the way the pier reaches so far out into the water.

The rust gives some fantastic colours and effects.

I, too, would have been drawn to the textures and reflections. Two of my favorites!

You were right it was camera time. I'm intrigued by reflections in wet sand.

Lovely reflections Carolyn -- I'm intrgued by the kids playing near the abandoned structure -- maybe part of a lets-pretend game? Or maybe they liked just having a boundary.

I think I would feel a bit claustrophobic so close to the wall, wide open spaces for me.

Great shots. Not where you would expect such an interesting reflection.
