Rippled Tidepool With Clouds

One of the best things about the beach is how it changes every day. The sand moves in and out, exposing or covering reefs and waves tumble cobblestones randomly into piles or spread across vast expanses. Depending on how strong the tides have been and the size of the waves, there can be clusters of shells or piles of sea weed, or sand that stretches off into the distance, as far as you can see. The color of the ocean changes every day, as well. Sometimes the deepest indigo blue, other times a crystal blue that is so achingly beautiful, even poets haven't found the words to describe it. Rogue winds can blow white caps that thrash and churn and other times offshore winds feather every wave.

The photograph was taken over the Memorial Day weekend, during extremely low tide on a blustery morning with the clouds reflected in the tidepools.
