14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Sunrise on the Caribbean Sea

On one of the last few days of our most recent bareboat sailing trip our skipper, my brother, woke up before the sunrise and made way to our destination for the day. I woke with the sound of the motor charging and peeked out of my cabin hatch to find my Mother and Sister sitting in silence with the rising sun in a completely serene moment. I quietly captured the moment without their knowing and later found it to be a truly authentic travel photo because it captured the essence of our trip and tells a story by itself.
