What an amazing display of creativity, talent and execution, Bryan! The first moment I saw this work, I was blown away. My wife teaches film photography and when I showed it to her, she said, "I love that...BUY it!". It will definitely be a sublime addition to our art collection. Bravo!

OMG Bryan - I have been looking for this for almost 20 years! It was on the back of a brochure from a tech show, circa 1980's 1990's, a 2" x 1.5" I carried it around for decades. My son has been so intrigued by this image ever since he was a kid and even carried the little snipit in his wallet for awhile. It got worn, even though I encased it in plastic. We searched the Internet for years. Found many copies with other peoples messages on them. Lightning farmers just turned up some rock group. er rock music. What a thrill to read your story to discover that this is a photograph and the folks were real. What is even more incredible is how did you manage to capture it just right? How many shots did you take? Still didn't understand how you got the lightning in the jars. What if we could harness energy in a jar (like a generator) and recharged by the sun! His birthday is coming up and he will be thrilled with a real Bryan Allen!

Bryan Allen replied:

Wow Suzanne, You looked a long time. Thanks so much for your purchase and kind words. Glad you finally found the image. I hope you enjoy it equally as long.

Bryan -- outrageous!! Wonderful creation!! What is the connection with this and the Pink Floyd album cover??

Bryan Allen replied:

Thanks for the comment Bill! The connection is that someone in Russia helped themselves to the image and produced a bootleg. Pink Floyd had no involvement - unfortunately.

Matthews, NC - United States

Bryan, forgive me if I'm the 350th person to bring this up but, for some reason I remember this image being used on a Pink Floyd album. I think it was a Greatest Hits CD compilation? I've seen it all over the internet for many years I believe. Just curious if the image was ever licensed as an album cover and how long ago it was created?

Bryan Allen replied:

Hi William, I don't think anyone else mentioned that in a comment here. It has been licensed properly for album covers before but the Pink Floyd cd set you referenced was a bootleg made by a guy in St. Petersberg Russia that goes by the handle Zolty The Silent. I only know because I bought one and saw his 'credit' on it. I tried to contact him but he lived up to his name. The image itself goes way back to PS3 days, say around 1996 or 7.

Baltimore, md - United States

lllllooooovvvee!!!

Bryan Allen replied:

Thank you very kindly Monique!

Castries, Ca - Saint Lucia

Very very nice. Wasn't sure if it were either a hyper-photo-realistic painting. This is NOT done in Photoshop you say? Absolutely genuine and authentic piece of work. Love this composition. This looks like a great story of an old American couple who harvests lightening and are pros at this for years in the prairie hills. Nothing to it, so says the ol' man in the foreground. I love this story-telling artwork of yours. Just so unique.

Bryan Allen replied:

Hi Lou Ann, thanks for the lovely comments. I'll have to go back and read what I wrote because it was definitely Photoshop, the first version that had layers. I think that was PS 3. What I was trying to get across was that none of the effects were created using a filter or some such. These days you can make what looks like electricity or lightning without ever getting out of your chair. But who wants fake lightning?
