A new beginning can commence at any time. A new direction to follow is a gift, an opportunity. Photography, part of my life on and off since i was ten, has become a mood-lifting, exciting, positive motivator in my life! For the holidays, i purchased a compact, inexpensive camera which is proving to be quite easy to use with more capabilities yet to be learned. Am part of a photo community site, which is quite exciting, also. Goal is just to take acceptable photographs and moving to more artistic photos.
When one is mostly house-bound, photography offers the opportunity to explore nearby areas, look for small beauties often only glanced at, and make memories of their loveliness. Have never posted a photo on a blog previously, so may blunder along, but will not give up!
The photo shown is the view from my apartment. The large tree is about 70 feet away and the mountain is far away. This is part of the desert vista where i live… the tree has small, green, feathery leaves as is common here is Tucson. Every morning i gaze at the sky with its varied rays of light and at the mountain which may be touching clouds or may be brightly colored by the morning light. The sky is ever changing in the winter and holds many beautiful sights. Hope you enjoy this modest photo. Have a peaceful day.
