I actually enjoy driving down to the valley. It is a two and a half hour drive each way, and it gives me some alone time. I love the way the mountain looked on my way down and just had to find a place to stop and take a picture. I probably love it because there is no snow on it. There are definitely times when the desert has it's own kind of beauty.
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.
