Pictures of beaches during King Tides, which are the highest of the high tides and the lowest of the low tides each year, can be quite beautiful, especially if there are people, buildings, piers, boats, and sunsets (or sunrises) to provide reflections on the wet sand and make it that much more beautiful.
Yesterday the sun set at 4:53 p.m., the exact time of the second-to-the-last King Tide for 2017. Check out the beautiful pictures from the Oceanside pier.
Most of the people in the wet sand were taking pictures,
and most of them were members of the Pacific Photographic Society,
to which I belong and the reason I was there yesterday.
Ooopsy. A couple of photographers forgot their tripods!
