Photo Spot Details

The Scripps Pier is photographers’ favorite in San Diego at sunset. The beach crowds have left and there is ample, free parking on the road with a short walk down to the beach. ┬áSunsets can be random, though. My unique approach – and old surveyor’s aluminum tripod with a thread adapter (easily available) to convert from 5/8″ to 1/4″ ball head. Certainly heavier than a carbon fiber model, but easier to clean and I don’t worry about getting it in the ocean.
