I had been watching the sky last night at around 7pm and couldn’t decide if we might have a nice sunset and ended up opting to stay in. But then I heard a clap of thunder and checked the radar to find a bright red spot passing just south of Marblehead and jumped in the car.  I drove to Devereux Beach and arrived to find the last light of a rainbow fading. Unfortunately, no lightning appeared as I had hoped. Instead, I stayed until sunset and shot along the beach.

I worked on three images when I returned home and this was my favorite of them. The cumulous clouds were massive and I tried to find angles that would allow me to fully capture them. This shot with the fading sunlight reflecting off the cloud and creating an ocean glow was my favorite. It helps that the surf had a nice white color and pattern as it touched the sand.
