Lake Of Color by kkart Lake Of Color 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-Nothing but the sound of Coyotes singing. This is what greeted me yesterday morning as I photographed one heck of an incredible sunrise. It was kind of eerie with how still it was, not even so much as the slightest breeze in the air which made the air feel very heavy and stagnant. Kicking back, remote shutter in one hand and coffee in the other, I watched the sky come alive as though an artist had painted it with purple, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. I am really loving Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, what an amazing place to be as a photographer and to think it's so close here in Denver, Colorado and so few know about it, I had the entire place all to myself.

Simply when one who treats nature right,
Then Mother Nature will gladly show you her beautiful artwork and creation.
God will allow this to happen,
And Mother Earth will love you forever,
So treat Mother Nature, and Mother Earth, with true respect.
~~~
Not a very good poem. ^^;

I'd love to see a sunrise like that, but all too often those dastardly clouds just have to get in the way. :shakefish:
