While at Torrey Pines Beach just north of La Jolla CA, I noticed the great reflections of sky and clouds on the beach. Timing was critical. I had to wait for the right combination of sky, cloud, light, color, and water. This image was shot not upward to the sky but downward to the beach as the reflection was captured in the thin layer of water covering the sand as a wave receded. I was struck by the abstract quality of the image.
