City Pier, Naples FL

The pier in Naples, Florida is one of my favorite subjects when photographing in that area.

It has so many different faces based on the time of the day and the weather. It can be very crowded during the day especially over the Holiday season but folks tend to disappear very quickly after the Sun has set - even photographers with pro-gear and tripods were leaving the area BEFORE the magic light started to create its awesome show. I was literally alone on the pier and enjoyed the spectacular view just for myself.

The best days to photograph are the ones with heavy overcast skies and if you're lucky the clouds break right after or around sunset.

I created a dedicated gallery on my Portfolio Site and more will be added as I have many unprocessed pictures of the area in my library.
Here just some random outtakes:
