This old sandstone reef is just offshore from Point Loma, near San Diego.  It is a great place for tide pools, but few people visit this location.  Most beach goers seem to prefer the endless stretches of wide sandy beaches in the San Diego area.  But I like the more scenic and visually interesting spots along the coast, even if they are more difficult to reach at times.  Long exposures work well here.  They can emphasize the eroded structures while lessening the distraction of the waves, which would occasionally overwhelm the reef.   The clouds also moved quite a bit during the 15 seconds of exposure, which added to the surreal look of this scene.
