This photograph of the Manhattan Beach Pier in Southern California was shot using a special long exposure technique. By keeping the camera's shutter open for a prolonged period of time, it creates the almost mystical appearance of the ocean while the pier's structure remains as a beautiful and highly detailed architectural landmark. Everything would have been a lot easier had I propped up a mannequin against the pier, but actress Danielle Ricci was amazing. She managed to hold the pose for 30+ seconds, despite repeatedly getting splashed by icy cold waves!!
