After hearing of a lone mangrove tree that grew about 50 meters past the high tide line on an isolated beach on the southern tip of Costa Rica's Nicoya Peninsula, I was intrigued. High tide during my visit was around midnight so I hiked along the beach for an hour before sunset to reach the spot. I set up my composition with the remaining daylight and waited for the next few hours for the tide to roll in.

As darkness came on, I noticed the amazing bioluminescent dinoflagellate organisms in the breaking waves, which were associated with a strong red tide in the area. I used a timer remote and a modified headlamp to light paint the tree with the glowing dinoflagellates and the stars as a backdrop.

Being on this beach, and photographing along with good friends and fellow photographers Greg Downing and Nick Hawkins, was a highlight of my nature photography experiences. We truly felt like we were at the the edge of the Earth!
