While I felt sunrise light would work best for this composition, this evening was perfect for a much different mood. I had hoped for more clouds on this evening, but the sky was relatively clear. Then some clouds started drifting into view, moving across the reflective pothole created by the relentless surf. I moved as low and close to emphasize the pool, and waited for the cloud to drift across the sky and reflection. The lack of clouds in general, except for this nice cumulous, really helped the image.
