Photography Contest - Real Life Places
Dick Greenberg has inspired us to share our best photos for his November 2016 Photography Contest.
This is my entry for the Real Life category in the travel/places subcategory.
Terramar Beach is one of the more beautiful beaches in Carlsbad where I live. Indeed it ranks right up for the many beaches I've been to in Southern California.
In addition to the beauty of this beach with the spectacular cliffs, it holds a special meaning for my wife and I as it's where our younger daughter got married about 3 years ago. It was a small wedding, with about 35 guests who braved their way down the concrete stairs and across sand to just the right place for the wedding. And it had to be planned so high tide was not occurring which would covered much of this gorgeous area.
I took this photo a few months ago when I was checking out the erosion which has changed the size and form of the beach, but Terramar remains a special place.
