You need to come off the line side of the clock to feed your photocell. And then from the load side of the photocell you can feed to the load side of the time clock. Leave the time clock wired the way it is now. What this will do is feed the light with the photocell or the time clock, but keep in mind by doing this the light will always remain on when it is dark. There is no other way to do it.

If I understand correctly, you want to add a photocell to existing receptacle.
Start by looking at receptacle:
Receptacle has 3 different colored screws.
Green screw for bare ground wire
Brass screws with black Hot wire connected.
Silver screws with white Neutral wire.
How to wire photocell to receptacle.
Remove black Hot wire off of brass screw and connect black wire to photocell-black wire. This will power the photocell switch.
Connect photocell-red wire to brass screw on receptacle. This will turn receptacle on-off whenever photocell switch turns on-off.
Connect photocell-white wire to silver screw, and this will complete circuit to photocell switch so the switch is able to operate.
All white Neutral wires are connected to silver screws.
