Summer Lightplot

Description: The beach shows a full azure horizon with a clear blue sky. Above the beach, the sun is shining down with the sand the color of peanuts. There is a single butter-colored skeleton of a starfish nestled in the sand.

Despite how pretty it looks, this single dead starfish makes me ponder about the numerous shells and skeletons that are underneath the sand. It makes me wonder how much ugliness in underneath the beach, and how much time and death had past to make it this beautiful.
