Starfish on the beach at St. Simons Island, Ga. 6-7-06 f/8 1/13 sec. ISO 100 10-22mm lens at 10mm. Category: Perspective - High Angle View Looking Down. I obtained this starfish at the local shell shop. I used a tripod with the camera mounted very close to the ground. I was lying on my left side in the wet sand. The camera was pointed down at the starfish. I had hoped for clouds, but I was pleased that the muted colors in the sky matched the warm colors in the sand and the starfish.
