Simple answer. You can't.


The iCloud Photo Library is primarily a syncing system, designed to keep your photo library synced between subscribed devices. All edits, including deletions, are synced in real time between your Mac and your phone while the library is enabled.


It is not a hard drive in the sky and Apple currently has no cloud only storage options for photos.
