: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- I decided once again to hit up the sunflowers fields last evening. I was completely floored by the conditions of the weather which greeted me. A combination of rain, lightning and thunderstorms clashing with the sunset. It was like witnessing something out of a Hollywood movie. Before the clouds completely rolled in which was amazing with gust fronts and Lenticulars, the sunlight was poking through the sky and created a very dramatic and hard to photograph glow as it hit the verga and falling rain. While it seems bright, it was actually rather dark as evidenced by the exposure times. One thing is for sure however, it was dang beautiful!

: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!
