Photo of the Day

Sunny Days

Off the coast of California, Your Shot photographer Adam Martin was rewarded for his patience. "I sat for 30 minutes and watched an explosion of color unfold before my eyes," he says. "Bright orange Garibaldi, the state fish of California, bathed in the sunbeams on a warm and sunny day." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
