It was like another world under the pier at sunset. The lights allowed extra detail to be seen on the vertical pilings, while a long exposure softened the water.  It took a while to get the best vantage point where the fewest pillars were blocking other pillars while still showing glimpses of the ocean beyond.  And I had to avoid the bright lights, which would become seriously overexposed and ruin the image.
