THE GATHERING - STARFISH

STARFISH

STICHASTER AUSTRALIS

On a low spring tide a small group of rocks at Ruapuke house a colony of starfish. As the water recedes it reveals a mass of interlocking tentacles. Processing the image in black and white really intensified the textures of the starfish and brought real depth to the composition.
