Since rock and sand are such important elements in the seascape, choosing a memorable vantage point can be crucial to the creation of a good photograph.  I spotted the amazing cloud formation first, and then I looked around and found a spot where the sandstone formations lined up with the cloud patterns. I had to run quite a way down the beach to get here just in case the alignment were to disappear.  Then I waited for a wave to complement the scene and provide definition to the sandstone formation on the right side of the frame.  I have never seen anything like this before or after, so I was quite fortunate!
