Roads And Rainbows by kkart Roads And Rainbows by kkart
If you enjoy my photography, considering buying a print- The funds will go towards having my camera repaired.
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

Anyways, this was photographed at sunrise at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge in Denver. It isn't often we get weather like this here at sunrise where the sunrise is reflecting against the falling rain and creating a rainbow. Right time, right place I suppose. It was pretty incredible to witness and photograph.

Oh my! I love how the rainbow, shoulder and center lines mimic each other.
Hope you get ahead of those medical bills soon. I have been down that road, and it's no fun at all! :hug:
