I was just trying to shoot anything at this point. The photos prior to this one had a girl who kept running back and forth stopping briefly to take pictures of herself. It was quite strange. This shot was after waiting for multiple people to finally get out of the frame and I think I was lucky to get one without people because their were quite a bit on the beach despite the nasty clouds.
On a whim I asked my girlfriend to take a drive to the beach and the sun was already setting and I noticed this behemoth cloud and wanted to photograph part of it.
