13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Morning sunshine peeking while deep sea fishing in California

This picture was taken about 7AM while on my family's annual memorial deep sea fishing trip for my late Grandpa on August 9, 2015 out of Oxnard/Channel Islands in California. Every year we take this trip around his birthday because his sons all love to fish and he was the one who taught them. I have a Christian faith and believe God and my grandpa were lookin down on us that day.
