Bioluminescence algae put on a show this night in Avila Beach, CA. Originally my friend and I were at this location to shoot the late season Milkyway core but as the night fell we began to see bright flashes of green and blue in the water. With every wave crash the bioluminescence algae lit up on the rocks and beach.—Photo by Jeffery Ross #redtide #bioluminescence #glow #nighttimephotography #stars #beach

HAPPY SATURDAY! "This is a photo of my friend Caitlin duck diving under a set wave in Santa Barbara, California in 2014. Nature matters to me because as a kid one of my favorite things to do was to play outside. Now that I am a mature adult it is still one of my favorite things to do whether it is surfing, running trails or riding my bike into the mountains, nature provides the most unique playground."—Photo by Les Morales #California #santabarbara #waves #ocean #playtime #saturday
