Family's Heartbreak

I had a unique opportunity to visit my Little Sister's grave today. It was the first time in at least 3 or 4 years so I thought it would fit with the "heartbreak" theme. I took a bunch of pictures but I have to be honest, I just wasn't feeling the heartbreak. I've finally started to feel more peace and comfort in place of the heartbreak so I just couldn't use her story for this particular post. So, I kept searching for something, then as we were leaving I spotted this headstone. The family picture in the center caught my eye so I looked closer. Such a young family to have lost thier father. I don't know anything about them or what happened, but my heart broke a little bit looking at thier picture.
f/8 ISO100 1/200sec.
CC PLEASE- I really struggled with how to crop this one.
P.S. I'm in UTAH! And I'm headed to Idaho on Wednesday. Anybody around who might want to meet up, any photo-ops I can follow you around for. I would love to learn from some of you MASTERS!

That is so sad that that family lost their dad at such a young age.
I love the lighting in this picture. The rays of sunshine offer peace and hope. I think you did a good job on the crop. :)

I agree with Breezi, the lighting is so pretty, even tho it is kind of sad, it is a beautiful peaceful picture.

I like the way you cropped the photo, and the sun setting in the background is a beautiful touch.
