We just returned home from a week long trip to Bethany Beach, DE. The beach was great and we had good weather for the most part. My parents are nice enough to take our family to the beach each year, but in addition this year Lyndsay’s dad, Todd, came down for two days during the week. We really had a good time. Even though we had a great trip nothing beats coming home to your own bed and the bringing home the animals from the kennel. I’ll make a post soon with some favorite family photos so stay tuned!
This was the first year I had a tripod along for our beach trip so I knew I wanted to get some long exposure shots. I searched online for good locations before we left home. I had a few spots in mind but Cape Henlopen topped the list with it’s great rock groin and the remains of an old wooden groin (I won’t lie I had to look up what a groin actually was).I figured the park would be closed at the time I planned on arriving so I arrived extra early to make a forty five minute walk from North Rehoboth Beach. After driving there and confirming the road was blocked off I parked my car and started trudging through the sand. After passing the old World War II lookout towers and continuing on I noticed a couple standing on the rocks I was headed for. After saying hello I asked where they parked and they said in the parking lot near by. I guess some of the access roads weren’t blocked after all. I was kinda bummed because I knew that I had another long walk back after shooting when I could have just parked near by. But the long walk and 4:15 wake up time were worth the effort. I think the above image is my favorite from this morning, but I have a couple others that I also will eventually share.
