The chaos of a wave breaking on the beach is frozen here in a photograph taken this afternoon in North Bethany, DE. This shorebreak wave was only about two to three feet high but still exploded onto the sand with great force. Sandy water flows back into the face of the breaking wave adding to the interesting patterns.
