I took this shot at sunset hoping to get some colors initially. However, the weather had other plans and the colors weren’t what I expected. Fortunately, the moody clouds still turned out to have their own charm. Also, boulder beach is just generally a nice spot regardless of the weather. The tide was moving so fast on this day that I had to keep changing position every few minutes to avoid getting soaked. This made for quite the challenge in finding a good spot to get what I was looking for. Basically, I had to keep picking up my tripod and moving inland, recompose the shot, and fire away. Eventually, after about an hour of meandering around, I felt that I had at least one usable photograph and called it quits. This is the general theme on my excursions; I will shoot a couple of hundred shots and only use one. If I get two photos out of a location, I consider myself fortunate.
Anyway, hope you like the result!
