This week’s Morning beach highlights

Hermosa
Foggy Saturday morning in Hermosa Beach. Can you find a pier in there? By Jefferson Graham for the Photowalks series.

It was a great week to be on the beaches of Manhattan Beach and Hermosa Beach in the early mornings, as we had low tide every day. Or at least between 5:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., when we were out with the iPhone 12 Pro, documenting the Pier to Pier action.  

Here’s a sampling of what we saw, as post Labor Day found the morning light take a little longer to come out and start shining.
