That's really sad, you don't get that many pier's any more. What cruel and stupid thing to do. Fantastic photo though, really captured the moment well.

so sad to see a beautiful place burn down, I hope they caught the person or persons. From your other pictures it looks like a beautiful place.

I'm not usually impressed by photos--I lack the "eye" to appreciate them--but this one is remarkable.

Bastards. *shakes head* Ironically, what an apropos for "Smoke on the Water", a very good song.

The shot here is a very good one. I'd love to see even more great work that DOESN'T involve incidents like this XP
