17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Refined Rawness

A calm sea with usual winds gives an opportunity for fishermen to search for the hidden treasures of the Sea of Cortez. This image depicts a before and after of how we shape nature. The wood provides material for us to build anything we can imagine. In this case, a opportunity to move on the water in search of the abundant fish off the shores of Loreto. It brings peace to feel the gentle move of the fishing boat floating in the infinite horizon, held by mother nature.
