A medium-length exposure shows the spin of the wheel, as riders enjoyed a magnificent sunset over the Santa Monica Pier.  This was the best part of a great sunset, then I waited for the lights on the pier to become as bright as the sky in order to create Santa Monica Spin #2 about 20 minutes later.  For a brief moment in between waves, the sand turned glossy, so I made sure to capture that moment with the wheel in motion, which was not very often during the best part of the sunset!
