I shot it further down the pier. The actual fair area is off the side of the pier.

Oh my god... Get your camera, sketch pad, markers, head out to Santa Monica pier, its right at the end of I-10, you'll miss it if you dont take the last exit/first exit after. Then just sit out there and enjoy, watch the sunset, play the fair games. You'll thank me later.

It's a slow shutter so I could blur the wheel. :) It goes normal speed.

It's so bright and energetic, yet calm and relaxing at the same time - just like how I feel when I go there (live right by it)

I'm so jealous you live right by it. It's a nice place... The night I was there was cloudy, and so the sunset was a little disapointing, but still, it's a fun place to be. Go, have fun.

That's gorgeous. I forgot that the Ferris Wheel lit up that way.

Was this taken a short time after they started building the rides? Because it doesn't look as crowded as it tends to get nowadays.

It was taken just this past april, and it wasn't that crowded actually.

So many people do ferris wheel shots and end up with a mediocre product. You've done this shot proud! =)
