Pier at Old Orchard Beach During Sunrise

Aug 19, 2011 | Sunrises & Sunsets

The Old Orchard Beach Pier in Maine is one of my favorite piers in America. Unfortunately for me it has been a pier that has been difficult to shoot. The first time I was here I shot everything at 800 ISO. Don’t laugh… I know you’ve done the same once or twice. The second time there, I completely forgot my camera, thinking it was in my case when it was actually sitting back at my cousin’s house. I guess what they say is true… third times a charm, and this time I made sure of it!
