Between the sea and the sky

By Southern California standards, this weekend saw a huge downpour.

The generally crowded pier at King Harbor in Redondo Beach was left empty. But for Lenny Lloyd da Silva, the unusually dramatic weather and big cloud formations are just an invitation to go out and shoot photos.

Da Silva captured a moment of calm during a break in the storm. The reflection in the slick concrete blends together pier, ocean and sky, and the line of jellyfish etchings seem to swim out to sea.

"I wanted to catch the pier somewhat empty and with the reflections," Da Silva said. "It was close to sunset, the light was so moody and the ocean was so calm, where a few minutes ago, it was such a mess. Just a very cool scene."

Da Silva used a Nikon D3100 to make the image.
