bride & groom
The Huntington Beach Pier has been knocked
down by intense ocean storms and rebuilt numerous times,
each time with enhanced engineering and upgraded products.
The latest Pier was built through fundraising donations of
local citizens and groups that felt having a pier in
Huntington Beach is necessary as part of its roots.
Photographing the Huntington Beach
Pier can provide challenges, yet can yield some of the most
interesting photographic images you'll capture in Huntington Beach. The
sun rises on the south side of the pier and provides a great
photo location during the morning hours. As the sun
approaches Noon, the lighting becomes difficult from the
base of the pier and you may find yourself looking at sun
glare. Afternoon creates sun-lit opportunities on the
north side of the pier and when the sun goes down, you can
walk around and shoot photos from all sorts of angles.
Below are some examples of angles and lighting to hopefully
inspire you to take your camera and get busy photographing
the Huntington Beach Pier.
This pier has
been the landmark and centerpiece of Huntington Beach for over
100 years since it was first built in 1904.
