Five Legs

Purple and Orange Starfish, taken really near sunrise, which happened to coincide with the low tide. The light was crummy so early, and a morning mist was rolling in to further dampen the scene. As the light theoretically improved, the mist thickened, and the tide started coming in. Boo.

And back again, this time near Sunset. Low tide was just after sunset, meaning of course, more sub-optimal lighting conditions to work with.

I brought my tripod down this time for a change from the high ISO shots from the morning.

I was able to get much better depth of field. Luckily Starfish don't move much. Still, should have probably upped my ISO a little from 100 to get a more reasonable shutter on some of these.
