Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Bioluminescence” by Benjamin Williamson. Location: Georgetown, Maine.

“This is the second time I’ve had the good fortune to capture bioluminescence,” says Williamson. “Thanks go to my good friend Jon for inviting me to go out on this night. I'm usually very protective of my sleep, but it had been a while since I had seen my friend and wanted to hang out. We started by walking the shoreline through the park and ended up on Griffith's Head, where Jon set up a time-lapse. I had wandered back this way because I wasn't happy with anything I had gotten and it was getting close to dawn. I had just about reached the park boundary when I noticed what looked like reflections of starlight in the surf. Closer inspection revealed a multitude of tiny points of light flickering on and sometimes catching a ride whenever a wave came in. I took about 10 frames then tried to call Jon and tell him to get his butt over here! It went straight to voicemail. By the time I ran back to get him the sky was already turning blue with the first hint of twilight. These moments are so fleeting!”
