Bioluminescence  by kgolab

Bioluminescence

We had fun chasing the Bioluminescence with the kids, but it was difficult to photograph. However I am putting this photo here, so that I can see how my skill grows in photographing this phenomenon over time.

My eldest daughter was agitating the water to get it to glow blue.

"Bioluminescence occurs through a chemical reaction that produces light energy within an organism's body. For a reaction to occur, a species must contain luciferin, a molecule that, when it reacts with oxygen, produces light"
Lovely night capture!

Nice photo. Many years ago when I was in the navy we sailed through the Indian Ocean. I remember at night you could see the wake of our ship all aglow from the bioluminescence in the water. It was spooky.

Wonderful to see. I once saw it in Mexico as the waves broke on the beach in the late evening .

Great night scene, we have the bioluminescence here in the summer and I have been unable to capture it....hopefully next summer.
Have you seen this YouTube video with dolphins and the bioluminescence https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bJcTWr8-mFo
