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.

Mikayla - Day 142

Mikayla also loves the snow.  But her favorite part of the entire day was that we did not go to the hills alone.  we took our friends.  Since they were younger, Kayla helped take them up and down the hills.  This was their first time down, and you can see that both girls are just a little nervous.

But hey, it was so much fun that she had to go again, and again, and again, and again!

Until she discovered belly surfing!  Then, there was no stopping them.  Here is the surfboard with her human companion!

Now this, was fun!!
