Sea Foam on a Windy Day

Sea Foam on a Windy Day

Windy Day with Lots of Sea Foam, San Mateo Coast/Pescadero, South of San Francisco, California. Although it looks like soap suds, sea foam is a natural occurrence. Sea foam forms when strong winds whip up remains of phytoplankton into masses of frothy bubbles. The stronger the wind and waves, the more sea foam washed onto shore.
