The bioluminescent waves of Vaadhoo Island

The bioluminescent waves of Vaadhoo Island

Doug Perrine, a marine biology photographer, has captured stunning images of bioluminescent waves, in Vaadhoo Island, Maldives. The spot holds a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton, much to the delight of photographers.

Various species of phytoplankton are known to bioluminesce, and when washed ashore by the tides, their chemical energy is turned into light energy, illuminating waves all over the world.

The biological process is ancient, natural and found around the world. If you’ve never seen it, it’s most easily observed on nice, warm beaches after dark.

Alcaidesa in Spain


I was golfing for a week in Spain.  The club house at Alcaidesa Links Golf Resort is really impressive.  In the picture we see two pools and Mediterranean Sea behind them.
