If a picture paints a thousand words

This blog is a place for me to work on my photography. My goal is to submit a new picture every day and to get better as the moments go by. I take all pictures with my digital camera. I worked for years with a 35 mm minolta, and this is a learning experience for me. I am afraid that I got lazy and allowed the camera to choose most of the settings for me. This is my journey of learning how to shoot a camera that is not in a program mode. It is harder than I ever imagined. That makes this challenge both a new experience and a joy for me.

Day 13- Preparing for Winter

The Wood Pile / Work in Progress - Day 13

The only problem with living in the mountains, is the snow.  It is very expensive to pay for propane or electricity to heat our homes.  So, most of us use wood stoves of some kind or another.  Part of getting ready for winter is the sawing, gathering, splitting and chopping of the wood we will need to get us through the winter.  Here is our slowly growing supply.  We still need several more cords!

As you can see, we still have a long way to go, and a short time to get there!


  1. we have to start doing this next week, not ready for a log fire yet!

  2. Love the texture in the wood, great shot!
