The Pier

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Robert DeRosa

Part of the series "Winter Light: Coney Island". The famous pier and Parachute Jump at Coney Island shot during the winter of 2009. The park was quieted by the freezing temperatures and the wind gusts of up to 40 miles per hour that almost blew my camera into the Atlantic Ocean.

Location: Coney Island, Brooklyn New York
