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.

The Prickly Pear - Day 36

What do YOU do with a Prickly Pear? - Day 36

The Prickly Pear grows all around the state of Arizona.

The spines look so intimidating!!

You would never know that the fruit is amazing to eat.

So amazing, that we choose to drive 54 miles just to collect a small amount

We don't just look at it, oh no!!

With a little work, we get to enjoy a little bit of heaven on our breakfast pancakes!

And don't worry, there are no spines in my jelly.  
This lovely specks are chipotle peppers that my husband loves.  
So, it becomes prickly pear chipotle pepper jelly.
