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.

Frozen - Day 94

Today I am participating in the Sunday Creative where the topic for this week is frozen.

Frozen:  1. Made into, covered with, or surrounded by ice. 
             2.  Very Cold
             3.  Preserved by freezing

The snow fell
Glistening in the moonlight
Freezing all of the living
Into white, breathing statues
Of remembrance.
Will bring the sun
In all it's blazing glory
Thawing the world
once again.
But for tonight
I can admire 
The frozen beauty
Of cold, sparkling
New snow.


  1. It looks like we are all dealing with the evil snow :) That depicts frozen masterfully!

  2. The snow looks so pretty piled up on the tree like that!

  3. Great poem! And this looks like one branch I would not want to walk under...

  4. There is something so magical about a new snowfall at nighttime!
