Sometimes my new edits turn out to be just what the market wants!

I wrote earlier in the month about seeing one of my images in a thumbnail and my mind wandering to a new or different edit. The main edit in that case was one of a drowning man holding a bitcoin, but I also realized that I hadn’t uploading the underlying scene of the dark stormy sky with the flooded ocean:

The sky for this was an HDR version of the sky over the Shenandoah valley coupled with an ocean generated in the Flood photoshop plugin. So I gave it some keywords to illustrate global warming or the rise in sea levels and uploaded it. It has only sold twice, but the one today on Shutterstock was for $75. So this one certainly earned its keep!
