During the first week of July, our family took a two-day trip to Solvang, CA. It was a much-needed getaway for our family and ended up being a very memorable trip. I was a bit nervous about how to entertain four kids ranging from 9 years old to 17 years old. But everyone seemed to enjoy the various activities.
Although I was excited about using this trip as a photo opportunity, I didn’t want my shooting to eclipse our family vacation. So I limited my shooting to a hike at Nojoqui Falls, our time at Gainey Vineyard, an early morning solo expedition into the outskirts of Solvang, and one of the beaches in Santa Barbara on our way home.
This image is the first in a series of photos from our Solvang trip. I took this photo by running out into the middle of Mission Drive during breaks in the early morning traffic. Cars were going about 60 mph, so I had to give myself plenty of time to get my shot and get out of the way.
