Naples, Florida, USA. A photo taken beneath the Naples Pier. One thousand feet long, it has three-pillar supports and Brazilian walnut decking. The original pier was built in 1888, replaced and rebuilt several times since. Hoping to capture a dramatic sunset, enjoying beautiful weather meant that there were few clouds in the sky. The first night were there, an exiting storm system provided a few clouds - photos to be posted at a later date. After that - clear skies. This photo is a daytime capture of the right side of the structure. To my left was a couple enjoying the sun while lying in hammocks they tied to the columns - lucky them! This b/w/ is posted for Lyn's Wednesday challenge.

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
