This photograph was taken while on assignment for the Sun Magazine. The large skipjack is the Maggie Lee, the small one on the horizon is the Lucy Tyler. Because of the stormy weather, Bodine had a difficult time photographing and was surprised to find this image when he developed the film. Not only did it win the $5,000 first prize in the 1949 Popular Photography national contest, but it was also awarded medals in Canada, Sweden, South Africa, Hong Kong, France, the Philippines, Italy, Portugal, and all across the United States.
