The Algae Zone

Piece description from the artist

A wave of algae at Zuma Beach, Southern California was taken using a polarizer filter at a very slow shutter speed. Present is the chlorophyll in the algae, water droplets dispersing the sunlight normally prevent the human eye from seeing the green of the algae, however this filter eliminates this light reflection barrier and the camera is able to capture the chlorophyll. I wanted to capture this scene in an impressionist photograph where all the colors of the scene blend together. The effect was produced entirely on camera.
