This photo captures Gotland, a Swedish island in the Baltic Sea, as it is surrounded by van Gogh-esque streaks and swirls of phytoplankton. Blooms like this happen only when deep currents carry nutrients up to the surface, and the phytoplankton population explodes in growth.

Gotland is 109.4 miles long, by the way.
