Real scene from last summer in East Ukraine. Ukraine army trying to stop the Russian offensive at all cost. One young tank commander deliberately crashed his vehicle to the Russian t-72 in order to save the retreating soldiers. The both tanks were destroyed, and this young man lost his life there, later he was awarded by order people's Hero of Ukraine.  
I was trying to capture the exact place and time in this picture.

Wow... I have family in Ukraine, near Donetsk. 
Every day they live in fear,
They had heard of terrible events such as MH17
A peaceful civilian plane, packed with international citizens.
Which landed in the once peaceful sunflower fields.
The battlefields and the sunflower fields provide a beautiful, but terrible backdrop to this scene.
Beautiful... Absolutely stunning!
