A.M. After Dark

SDP  9-17-11

A.M., in this case, is Anna Maria.  This is the back side of the Anna Maria City Pier, which is situated over Tampa Bay.  (I showed you a daytime angle from the front in this photo.)  To the left is a little restaurant and outdoor bar overlooking the water.  I like to wander around, close to the edge, and see if the fish are biting.  (Not much action last night...just a few mackerel.)  This photo was taken shortly after dark with a 13 second exposure.  Of course, during that time, the fishermen in the shot moved, creating the wispy, apparition-like effect.  I kind of like it because it gives the illusion of people coming and going.

A nice shot and a place that looks so peaceful.

Stunning! It reminds me a Edward Hopper painting

Masterful, SRQ. When I get to Florida this winter, you should teach me to do night shots. I have tried some recently and I stink.

This is a beautiful shot. Love those lights in the distance on the horizon too.
