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.

There is Beauty All Around - Day 125

I found this beauty in the midst of a storm.  All of a sudden, the clouds lifted, the sun came out, and for a few moments, I had this.


  1. Like the dark of the trees with the white and gray sky!

  2. that is a sigth to behold...thank you for that eye candy today! ...very timely since we are to get some snowfall tonight :)

  3. They look like cotton candy. Thanks for the smile.

  4. Thank you everyone. These are some of my favorite shots. Made doubly good because there was no where to safely pull off the road, and I had to get these with camera hanging out the window as we drove.

  5. That is gorgeous!
