Balancing Act

I waited almost a year for this day. I knew the sun was at the point where it would present itself just over the Hermosa Beach pier prior to setting. I wanted to capture that moment.

I did so in near perfect balance. It took several shots to get it right. I would take a shot, view it in my camera's LCD and reposition myself for another shot. After around 5 shots, I go the one I wanted.

I walked to the end of the pier only to find the sun balancing itself on the pier's railing. I quickly took this shot and captured another nearly perfectly balanced shot.

I like the balance and symmetry of these photos and found a theme for today's posting -- a balancing act.
