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.

The Mogollon Rim - Day 124

I love the Rim Country, as it is called.  There is so much beauty in nature if we can just look past the current difficulties and find it.  These pictures we taken as the forest gives way to the cliffs of the Rim.  I love the golden brown in the midst of the white snow.

I also love how the trees can hang on and grow, nearly anywhere.  No matter what the challenge or the adversity, they just keep hanging on and growing.


  1. Beautiful scenery! You couldn't be more right about finding the beauty in nature if we are just wiling to look!

  2. I LOVE these pictures! The colors are amazing. What a great clear shot!

  3. Beautiful
