Namibia - May 6th, 2012

A faint phytoplankton bloom hangs in the waters off the shores of Namibia. The bloom is situated west of the southern part of the Namib Desert, an immense dunefield with tall, orange sand dunes. Phytoplankton blooms are common in this area due to the mixing of hot and cold ocean currents.
