Photographer Will Ho recently stumbled upon a beach covered in bioluminescent phytoplankton while vacationing in the Maldives Islands. Essentially bioluminescent phytoplankton glows the way that fireflies do. These shots feature millions of twinkling blue dots spread out across a beautiful stretch of beach at night.
These magical midnight captures show travelers a side of nature that they've likely never seen before. It appears as though these neon specks washed up on shore with the tide, creating a sort of luminous oasis on the beachside. As some of these shots show, stepping in these shimmering blue dots transforms footsteps into LED-style markings, which is pretty cool.
Will Ho's whimsical beach photography series is hypnotically beautiful. Bioluminescent phytoplankton lights a path for vacation goers who are looking to take a midnight stroll in this enchanting series.
