me and the electric sea
Right now the beaches around these parts have got a case of the red tide. For those unfamiliar, a red tide is basically when there is an overproduction of algae in the water and it literally turns the water into a gross rust color. It's weird to see (and I couldn't even imagine getting into that water, but it doesn't stop Grant from surfing in it!). However, a red tide at night is really cool because the water becomes luminescent as you can see in these photos. These pictures haven't been tampered with at all...that's really what the water looks like right now! Eerie electric blue waves crashing on dark beaches. It's a trip to see and very beautiful.
Also, on this night the stars were actually out at the beach for once. The long exposure really helped to bring them out. The long exposure also made some of these photos look like they were taken at dawn but it was just city lights making it look lighter.
Ever seen a red tide at night?
