Photograph by Jeff Berkes, National Geographic Your Shot

"I was exploring the Pacific Northwest when I stumbled upon these amazing [bioluminescent organisms]," says Your Shot community member Jeff Berkes. "I first noticed them near Neah Bay, Washington, and as I continued my journey south I kept finding [them] all along the coastlines. It was simply breathtaking and one experience I will never forget."
