Starfish Sunset

A few days ago I went down to the beach with Araya's camera and my GorillaPod, to take some sunset photos.  Araya kindly let me borrow her camera, because mine is broken. =( Her camera has superb live-view, which is very useful when your tripod is standing in three inches of water.  The intent was for me to stay dry (by not having to lay in the water to see through the viewfinder) but I was laying on the shore, looking through the live-view, and a big wave came up, and I was soaked.  Araya was not exactly super pleased that her camera strap was wet, but I kept the camera dry (and she could have rinsed it off it I didn't- her camera's very water resistant).

The intense color of the sunset reminded me that God has great taste! He must have had so much fun creating the sunset! If He can make such a vast stretch of the sky so beautiful, he can surely take our little needs.

Pentax K30
18-55 mm Pentax-Synaptic lens

Thanks Araya for letting me use your camera!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. Stunning, William. You must have intensified the color of the starfish, right? I've never seen one so blue. Aunt Jane

  2. William did some tweaking to intensify the color saturation. But really, that is about as blue as the starfish really are here. Such a lovely blue.

  3. Soo beautiful. I have a bunch of sunset pictures from Walla Walla Washington. I got the reflection of the sunset on the snow on the mountains. It's really gorgeous.

  4. Oh, it's fabulous! Thanks for sharing. Wish I could visit that beach with all of you. :)

  5. Amazing photo, William! Keep sharing your talent for photography with us.


I would love to hear your thoughts.
