Taiwanese photographer Will Ho happened to see a stunning phenomena on the shores of Maldives at nighttime. Millions of  bioluminescent phytoplankton resting on the shoreline emit light as the waves hit them or when budged as you can leave glowing footprints on the sand. Check out more of Will’s photos on Flickr.
