Bioluminescent Shrimp

Trevor Williams and Jonathan Galione of Tdub Photo captured these beautiful images of bioluminescent shrimp along the Japanese coast. The duo collected the tiny shrimp and poured them over and near rocks to create the effect they wanted. With their blue light, the shrimp act like tracer particles in the water, and with long exposures, the photos track the movements of the shrimp and waves. Technically speaking, they trace out pathlines – the trajectory that a specific fluid (or shrimp) particle takes in a flow. It’s a lovely way of capturing the water’s dynamic motion in a still photo. (Image credit: Tdub Photo; via Colossal)
