It’s a good time to be a San Diego photographer as some sections of the city’s coastline has the ocean glowing a bright blue leading to some incredible pictures.

The red tide phenomenon that has the ocean flowing is the result of a massive number of small organisms called dinoflagellates, that move through the sea.

Tower 19 orchestrated a great show.

The Union Tribune reports that the glow can be seen from Encinitas to La Jolla.

Check out some of the photos:

Red Tide at Night Photo by: Ryan Luke There was a red tide tonight, which is the result of a bloom of dinoflagellates, a type of plankton, which emit bioluminescence when they are agitated. The glowing blue wave is literally billions of these tiny sea creatures working their magic in harmony. #bioluminescence #redtide #dinoflagellates #phytoplankton #lajolla #delmar #carmelvalley #pacificocean #mysdphoto #sandiegogram #sosandiego #moonset #sandiego.city #socalshooters #10news #hwy101 #torreypines #raliroad #westcoast_exposures #planetary #sandiego_ca #mysdphoto #longexposure_shots #night_shooterz #nightscaper #nightphotography #night_owlz #nightshot #twilight #ryanlukephotography @sandiegoexposure @best.of.sandiego @sandiego.city
