It was fun guessing how close the incoming tide would advance and whether my starfish would float away. I chased after it several times, trying to keep my footing and not drop my camera in the process. Yes, it is a staged image (just like the ones you see in a travel magazine).
I have just returned from a three week stay with family in the Florida Panhandle. Enjoyed our time together. Did not get to the beach as much as I wanted, but was delighted to capture this image. It is one I have wanted to shoot for some time.
