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.

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

Naww :( I'd hate it if our pier got burned down, it's like a special part of the town.
Then again, it has been destroyed numerous times already XD

Still, this is a beutiful, sad shot.
And how could you be up at 3am? :O I'd be dead. Lol :3

Why people feel the need to set such things on fire, I'll never understand :no:

You captured the image very well, though I am quite fond of it, I can see how sad it would be. Sort of how I would feel about the pier here. Very nicely caught, and sorry it's gone :(

congrats on the DD though :)

It is so sad.
A couple of years ago, I witnessed Weston's Grand Pier burn down. It was heart wrenching. A century of history gone in just hours. Weston has experienced a lot of devastation through fire recently. Two victorian piers and a very old hotel... If it is all arson, why? The history should be protected not ruined :/...
