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 Harrowing Drive - Day 121
We just HAD to drive down the mountain to say good-bye to family and spend a New Year's Eve night. The drive took over twice as long as normal. I will remain silent on the stomach aches and gray hairs that it caused. Here are some amazing pictures so that you can understand the magnitude of the event.
This is the four lane major highway
And this is the forest all around. It was beautiful, if a little scary.
