Making time lapse video of Cape May sunrise
March 20, 2021
Two vacationing young couples from D.C. and the Philly area came out on the Cape May beach before 7 AM on the first day of spring to catch the sunrise. Because the beach faces more southerly than east, they had to position themselves out on a jetty to better see the sun peek above the horizon. One of them planted her phone in the sand to capture a time-lapse movie of the sunrise. Your correspondent had come to the beach at the same time to do the same! The friends had not yet visited Sunset Beach and your correspondent recommended an excursion there to witness a spectacular sunset from bayside on the west coast of the cape.
