A Valley Sunset by kkart A Valley Sunset by kkart
:bulletred: If you like my photography, please considering purchasing a print, the sales will go towards repairing my camera- After having medical bills from being very sick, I don't have the cash to repair it so I am trying to drum up print sales so I may continue to do what I love; photography. Sunday night while on a photoshoot up in the mountains, my camera gave up the ghost. It would appear the shutter died completely. After having just spent nearly a full week very ill in the hospital, I don't have the money to get a new camera or even repair it (it's loooong out of warranty) They say when it rains it pours, I think I must be going through a flood. I'm quite sad by it all as photography is my relief from an otherwise completely crazy world, it offers me peace of mind which I don't find anywhere else. This year has been incredibly hard for me, from being sick where I am facing my own mortality (because being septic is fun! Not.) to finances from hospital bills to just keeping my sanity, I have always gone to my camera to find comfort. Not much I can do now though I guess. I'll be honest with you all, it's hard being on here seeing everyone's awesome photos knowing that you can't do a dang thing to enjoy the same thing. In fact, it is downright depressing. Literally. Maybe I'll find a winning lotto ticket on the street lol One of my friends was nice enough to let me borrow his brand new Sony a65 until I can raise enough funds to repair mine. I need to buy him a few beers.

About the photograph-Fall once again is in the air here in Colorado and all I can say is thank goodness! It's the time of the year I look forward to all year long when my state puts on its best coat of colors to showcase its amazing beauty to the world. This was photographed in Rocky Mountain National Park just as a coming rain storm was moving in creating an awesome glow of color and light. I wish every day had sunsets like this....

:bulletblue: Sharing is caring!--My rules for using my images I ask that you respect my artwork and my rules when sharing my images. You are more than welcomed to share my artwork anywhere you like, however I do ask that you do NOT remove my , alter my image in any way, shape or form and that you link back to where the image came from, in this case my site on DA (though my personal website would be ok as well) That is all I ask. Thank you!

I was born in Denver...well,  Aurora....but your photographs make me homesick....even though I was only 3 when we moved away to Texas, it's like your photos take me home. I love your work so much. I have just got to fave this. Gorgeous work! :-)
