MAGIC SEA! Glowing blue water washes up on a beach in Vaadhoo, one of the Raa Atoll islands in the Maldives makes for such cool pictures. The result of a chemical reaction called bioluminescence, it occurs when a micro-organism in sea water is disturbed by oxygen.
Those glowing blue blobs are actually deep sea creatures called Glowing Firefly Squids, and they are some of the most beautiful of earth's marine life.
"Taken at Kjosfossen Waterfall on the train journey from Myrdal to Flåm, Norway. We stopped for five minutes to admire and take photos of this beautiful waterfall when, suddenly, Norwegian folk music started, playing from somewhere, and this young woman just appeared and danced for us. It was all a bit surreal!"
