- Description: I was exposing for stars 180 degrees from this picture. While I was exposing, I noticed a shimmering light out of the corner of my eye. At first I thought I was seeing things. The water around the rocks was swirling blue green light. I realized this was phosphorescent algae. I turned from my star shots to take this picture of the algae moving with the ebb and flow of the waves. The Milky Way makes a faint appearance in the upper right through the fog and light pollution.
- Gear: 5DMII, Really Right Stuff Tripod, Cannon Intervalometer
