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.

Fall on the Mountain - Day 53

I like to participate in the Sunday Creative Challenge over at Madeline Bea's.  You can go there to see some other examples.  This weeks Challenge was "Dynamic".  I thought the vibrant colors of fall fit the challenge very nicely.

When you live in the pine trees, like we do, it can be a little hard to find the whisper of fall around your home.  I actually saw these whispers a couple of streets over from my house.  I loved the colors of the turning leaves.  The red contrasts so well with the green and makes me believe that winter is not, quite, here.  There is not snow on the ground yet, but it is plenty cold in the mornings when we leave the house.


  1. Gorgeous fall colors! I have been searching for fall colors all...well fall :) They came and went really fast this year but I love them!
