Bioluminescence from Tindalls Beach (Whangaparaoa Peninsula)

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

Auckland photographer Matthew Davison has captured these amazing images of marine bioluminescence at Tindalls Beach on the Whangaparaoa Peninsula.

The Mission Bay resident said the phenomenon was notoriously difficult to catch sight of.

"Forget the cell phone - capturing these images requires a decent camera and lens (with low aperture) and a tripod that you don’t mind getting wet," Davison said.

There is a small army of “bio hunters” who religiously search the shores around the Hibiscus Coast (NZ) and beyond, he said.

"When the blue gold is found, a flurry of social media alerts follow. It’s a great people-powered system that enables many to witness this wondrous spectacle. "

Marine bioluminescence is a chemical reaction manifesting in the form of light which occurs when single-celled organisms called dinoflagellates are disturbed by a wave or splash, Davison said.
