The star fish really add to the shot in a subtle way.

Incredible shutter speed! That swirl in the bottom left is crazy! And on top of that you have an amazing composition and color with the starfish for added interest. Wow!

SUPERB! Love the composition & mood. Even the starfish colors match with the horizon!!

Low tide brings a trove of treasures along the coastline. On this January evening, I decided to explore Mile Rock Beach in San Francisco for something different.

Unlike Sutro Baths, this beach was completely empty but offered endless compositions as hundreds of normally submerged rocks were exposed by the retreating tide. I looked to the sky and knew it would blow up with the cloud mass approaching shore. I decided on my composition with the sea stack in the rear and found a spot with a bunch of starfish clinging to the foreground rocks.

The sunset came and went yet the sky did not explode as I was expecting. However, 10 minutes after sunset, the horizon began glowing pink. Slowly but surely the afterglow spread across most of the sky. The glow became so intense it lasted for a solid 40 minutes.
