Sea Foam – big time!

Tom Eckles was out on the public hiking trails recently and got a beautiful photo of Sea Foam.

Sea Foam after the storm by Tom Eckles

I learned from the NOAA website that sea foam is often indicative of a productive ocean ecosystem. Seawater has lots of tiny pieces of organic matter, plus salts, dead algae and more. When the ocean is agitated - a washing machine comes to mind – sea foam occurs. But this event was an amazing occurrence. All we need for Tom’s photo is a cherry on top.

Thanks to Tom for allowing me to share his photo with you here. To see much more of Tom's photography, here is his website:
