Most people visit Cathedral Cove during daytime. Well, I decided to go there at night and for a good reason. That was my first contact with the Southern Skies and it was like being reborn from an astronomical point of view. It was not only the sky that amazed me that night, but also the sea. All the electric blue patches on the ocean are actually bioluminescence. It’s a panorama stitched from 33 vertical images shot on three rows.
