“Des Moines Marina Pier at Sunset”

Click on the photo for a larger view.

From photographer Ray David:  This is a photo of the Des Moines Marina Pier take at sunset. The tide was low which allowed me to get closer to the pier for a lower angle which I feel adds to the drama of the photo. I used a 30 second exposure to get the nice silky smooth water. I particularly love all of the reflections in the water.
