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.

    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. 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!
