Galveston, Texas is a beautiful city where I captured some great photos of its beaches and the Historic Pleasure Pier at sunrise
A few weeks ago my family and I went down to Galveston Island, Texas to relax and get away for a few days. While I was down there I was able to get some great photos of people and of the Galveston seascapes.
One morning I woke up just before sunrise and headed out to the beach near Pleasure Pier. The scene was beautiful, I was able to capture a huge rain cloud in the distance hovering over the sea, it was gorgeous. I was just in how beautiful the sunrise was that morning.
Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier
The Historic Pleasure Pier in Galveston is like a blast from the past mixed with some present-day fun. First set up back in the late 1940s, it’s seen a lot of changes but still keeps that classic amusement experience. Hanging right over the Gulf of Mexico, the pier gives you rides, cool attractions, and killer views of the ocean. Whether you’re into old-school rides or just chilling by the water, the Historic Pleasure Pier has you covered. It’s not just about having a good time; it’s also a sweet spot that ties into Galveston’s maritime history, making it a must-visit for some laid-back coastal vibes.
While there, I visited the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier in evening and went on the rides. It was actually really fun and interesting going on rides on a pier. The view of the ocean from the ferris wheel were amazing.
The next morning I woked up early and took photos of it at sunrise. Fortunately, there were some amazing dramatic clouds that back lit the peir beautifully.
