Bioluminescence in Vilingili beach



On a dark night while i was traveling in Laamu Atoll from Maandhoo to Kunahandhoo the ocean was glowing in blue. Like how you see in the movie ( life of pi). It was amazing and since then i wanted to capture this phenomenon.  For someone frequently travelling in maldives, these glowing spots will not be missed.  But at these days there  are extremely large quantities on the beaches, I have a feeling  the movement of sun has something to do with this phenomenon (We are almost reaching equinox). Experimenting to capture the bioluminescence is not really hard. The hardest part is to locate these small creatures, But at this season there so many on the beach and on the edge of the wave.

Since last week i being seen a lot of updates on social network and here is my update from Viligili, Vilimale’

 is the production and emission of light by a living organism. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms and terrestrial invertebrates. Some symbiotic organisms carried within larger organisms produce light.Bioluminescence is a form of luminescence, or “cold light” emission by living organisms; less than 20% of the light generates thermal radiation. It should not be confused with iridescencestructural coloration,phosphorescence.
