SAN DIEGO -- While searching for the hidden aspects of San Diego, 10News stumbled upon an event that is really popular with still photographers, Scripps Henge.

At the end of Scripps Pier in La Jolla this week, photographers waited for the sun to set perfectly down the middle, which is rare.

"Twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, the sun lines up perfectly in the middle of the pier," said Knighton.

It's not an exact science, so photographers come day after day and just wait.

On this particular day, this throng of photographers had to deal with an unexpected obstruction, clouds.

But that didn't discourage those like Daniel Knighton who was waiting under the pier for more than three hours, watching the clouds and waiting for that perfect shot.

It's kind of a competition among them for bragging rights.

“Every guy hopes to get a picture better than the guy next to him, or her,” Knighton said.

The next Scripps Henge won't come until September.
