Photographer sees the light
WEDNESDAY’S health warning for seafood caught at Mindarie Marina gave a Kingsley resident a glowing photo opportunity.
Sarah Louise Horn captured photos of bioluminescence in the shallows on the northern side of the marina last week.
“I’ve been trying to find bioluminescence in WA for the last two years since I had a brief encounter around Two Rocks,” she said.
Mrs Horn said she did a web search after reading about the health warning at the marina on November 21.
“I found out it is one of the types that glows at night and got quite excited,” she said.
“When I got there I couldn’t believe my eyes; fish were jumping and swimming around, creating bright blue splashes.
“I ran down to the beach and my footprints started glowing. Mother nature sure can put on some good shows and this was one of them.
“I grabbed my camera and set it up how I would take photos of lightning and the pictures turned out exactly how I wanted.”
She took a bottle home that still glows at night.
