: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

About the photograph- Woke up early this morning and grabbed my gear and headed out. I've been wanting to get back to one of my favorite spots to photograph the sunrise, Lake Ladora here in Colorado, since I discovered it earlier this year. It was gorgeous, the air so fresh and pure after heavy rains soaked it the evening before. I have often found that the day after a storm can be some great conditions to shoot in. It was a crisp 52 degrees when I got this image but boy it felt refreshingly good! I walked away with a smile on my face knowing that I got the image I was looking for and wanting. I think I will need to take my friend out to dinner or buy him a case of beer for letting me borrow his A65 for a few weeks.

: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!

It's a nice view, but I think the foreground (the grass in front) is completely unnecessary in this shot.
