Ocean Beach Elementary fourth-grader Eden Carter, 9, knew when she took a sunset photo as a passenger heading down palm tree-lined Newport Avenue that it was one of those “wow” shots, which has since gone viral.

The Carters at the time were on their way to the martial arts studio where Eden works out.

“My mom said, ‘Look at the sunset.’ I was like, 'Oh, my gosh, I need to take a picture of this,’” Eden said. “It wasn’t anything I was planning on doing it. It just happened. It was a perfect picture.”

Eden said her grandpa told her he is going to enter it into a photo contest at this year’s San Diego County Fair in Del Mar.

“It is very exciting,” said Eden.

Eden’s dad, Bob Carter, described Eden as “very creative, imaginative and artistic.” He added, “She also plays the guitar and wants to be a cowgirl.”

Eden took the photo with her smart phone. 

“I guess we can thank Qualcomm for that,” said her dad.
