Evanston beach is a good place to catch the sunrise over Lake Michigan. But, on this day, I was planning to go to the beach during afternoon hours and the clouds were very interesting on the eastern sky. I took this opportunity to set up by the broken pier and the bright white cloud became my focus. From there onwards, it was lining up the pier to the cloud over the horizon. There have been so many shots of Evanston beach, so I wanted to do something different and decided to go monochrome and create a moody effect.
