Sunrise over Galveston Pier — in Galveston, TX. Have to say I don’t like getting up early for sunrise shots, but was my last morning in Texas and decided it was now or never. So set my alarm for 4.30am and took the 40 minute drive from League city into Galveston.
Here’s another photo from my day at Hastings, looking from the other side with the rocks and pier in the background.
This was shot as three exposures with a couple of ND filters I think ND8 and ND4 at F22 and then processed with Nik color Efex.
On Friday I went down to Hastings famous for the ‘Battle of Hastings’. But the weather was so poor I never took a single picture, very disheartening as it’s a 5 hour round car trip.
But on Sunday was such a nice day I decided to make the trip again. This time I got some great shots. I specifically went to get photos of the pier which is now dilapidated and just an empty shell. I took alot of slight variations on the same scene, so will be many months before I get around to processing them all.
Here’s the first one taken from the West side of the pier with sun overhead.
