Nature's Lights -Phosphorescent Algae
Photo By Marsha Kirschbaum

  • Title: Nature's Lights -Phosphorescent Algae
  • State/Province/Region: California
  • Country: United States
  • Nearest Area: Rodeo Beach
  • Nearest Town: Sausalito
  • Brief Directions: Walk along the Coastal Trail from Rodeo Beach
  • GPS Longitude: 122.541268
  • GPS Latitude: 37.831599
  • Best Season: Autumn
  • 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.

    Very nice set of "Arches" Stephen. Wasn't sure, but thought someone said one of the famous landmarks fell? Really enjoyed the "Double Windows" when there!
