Going Green

Posted by Barbara (Florida, United States) on 15 October 2010 in Cityscape & Urban.

Pier 60, Clearwater Beach, Florida.

The pier is the shape of a T, the angle you see is the top left of the T. In the distance is Sand Key which is a beach adjacent to Clearwater Beach.

This previous image gives a view of the top right T of the pier.

The Gulf of Mexico is blue waters, the illumination from the spotlight off of the pier makes it appear green in the night.

Being a vertical image, best viewed as small.

...and why is it green! Strange and beautiful and a little eerie too...all at the same time!

@Cruz: It is a bit eerie now that you mentioned it. Perhaps there is some algae growth that illuminates from the strong light. But I do know during the day the water near the pier looks blue. Thank you, Cruz for your visit and comment.

The green has an eerie feel to it, but makes for interesting photos. Good shot, Barb. Now tell me... how the heck do we view in smaller sizes? Maybe it's just me, but there doesn't seem to be a choice that I can find. :-0

@dang: As you and Cruz pointed out, it does have an eerie feel. I am assuming the light may have picked up algae color in the water. I can't explain why it took on this color. During the day the water does appear blue. I try to stay with landscape format in my images but this one I had to rotate the camera to get the scene in. The small or large viewing option is not much help. Located at very bottom of the viewing page on right side. As I see you have found already. Thanks for your visit, Tom.

'Dang' it ... Dang took my thoughts! ;D
There is no other word for that type of light in the water, but 'eerie'. This is a fantastic image!

Beautiful!!! I don't know why the wooden structure makes me feel that the photo is upside down. Love it!

@Verónica: I can see where you might think that. There is a structure with a roof on the deck of the pier. Thanks, glad you like it.
