    This has been approved to go on!

    So I had this idea and I thought it would be worth giving it a shot. I'm not entirely sure how it's going to work yet, but bear with me as I figure it out.

    As many know by now, @IronPeak lost just about everything as a result of the North Bay fires.

    I recently made some prints from one of my images of the recent eclipse and I thought it would be worth trying to raise some extra money for his recovery by auctioning one of the prints here.

    I also know that @Cuffs also lost her home not that long ago from the fires near Yosemite, so I'd like to split the proceeds to her as well.

    Edit 10/30: at her request, the full amount of the winning bid will go to IronPeak.

    The Prize:
    I am offering a 20" x 30" (HxW) print of this photograph (minus the watermark) I took of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse:

    _DSC0150.jpg

    If I can, I'll try to have the print mounted and framed, but at the very least I will have it mounted to gator board (like foam core but much more rigid) ready to be framed. I'll look into framing options as this goes and depending on how much interest this gets.

    I'll also include shipping.


    How this works:

    Post your bid in this thread. I will keep the OP updated with the current highest bid.

    Bidding will last for two weeks and end after midnight on the night of Thursday, November 9th (12:00AM November 10th PST). Edit 10/9: extended to Monday Nov 13 @ 12:00 AM PDT

    Any bid posted after that time will not count (the time indicated on posts will be used to determine this).

    Edit 10/30: The winner will send payment to @Cuffs who has already been graciously heading up collection for @IronPeak here:
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/norcal-fire-assistance.514606/

    I will coordinate delivery of the print with the winner and get it on its way once receipt of the money is confirmed.

    Please take care when making a bid, as it is your responsibility to honor it:

    I will do my best with running this smoothly, but ultimately I am subject to the decisions of the TW mods and admins. Rules and dates may be subject to change, any changes will be updated in the OP, and I will make a post notifying the changes.



    CURRENT HIGH BID:
    $350

    Since this is now happening, here's a teaser of the actual print.

    I'll be dropping it off to be mounted today, and it should hopefully be done sometime next week.

    @Cuffs has agreed to handle receipt of the payment of the winning bid at the end of the auction as she has already been collecting donations for IronPeak.

    I can vouch for the quality of the photo. You have to see it up close in person. Great focal point for any room in your home or office.
