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.

Four Peaks - Day 149

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.


  1. Love all the layers of colors

  2. This is fantastic and I love the "blue" and the texture of the mountain!

  3. WOW!!
    you know what I like about that photo? the contrast of colors as it starts out dark at the bottom and then gradually goes up to that beautiful stark blue! Lovely!
    I like the no snow part :)

  4. That is gorgeous!

  5. Thank you so much! This one is not edited at all, which was why I wanted to post it. I also loved the way the colors all layered into the background. Now, if only I can repeat it again!
