However, when I arrived heavy cloud had settled on the horizon which was blocking any strong light from breaking through as the sunset. I found this spot along the coastline of a boulder looking to be held in perfect balance in this little channel. The water led my eye right to it and with a bit of wind about I was also able to capture some nice textures in the foreground. Sometimes you have to be prepared to change your plans and always have your eyes peeled for other potential photographs rather than being set on the ideas you have in your mind.
