Doug Perrine captured these stunning photographs in the Maldives. The particular location (Vaadhoo Island) has a concentrated population of bioluminescent phytoplankton. Bioluminescence is a natural chemical reaction which occurs when a micro-organism in the water reacts with oxygen. When washed ashore by the tides, the phytoplankton’s chemical energy is turned into light energy, illuminating the waves.

It’s that frosty time of year. I once nearly missed that bridge on an icy day driving a twenty ton truck. Didn’t look so beautiful then.

Several more photos of winter in Iceland by Victor Eredel here.

Meteor hits Chelyabinsk, Central Russia. 1000+ injured. Amazingly no fatalities reported. 
Unbelievable scenes though.
