Santa Monica Pier the calm before the storm

Santa Monica Pier calm before the storm

The calm before the storm, photo of the Santa Monica Pier. Taken with a Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7 12.1 mp digital camera. To create this color cast, camera settings were set at ISO 400, lens at 78mm, aperture @6.3 and shutter speed of 1/2000’s of a second. Oh yeah and I had to stop traffic as I stood in them middle of the street! Kids, don’t try this at home, I’m a professional! 😉

This weekend and for at least the next 5 days, the forecast calls for rain in southern California. And to think that last weekend we had 80+ degrees at the beaches! Only in LA. 🙂
