Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

On The Road.

Ray and I pulled up and parked at rest stop along I-70 only to witness whatever was going on here.

Waiting for Ray at the same rest stop I witnessed this heart warming exchange.


More Moab Photos.

I uploaded some photos from thedigitalworkshops.com workshop I went to a couple of weeks ago. They are in the Porfolio Section of my website.
I am headed to Page, AZ for another workshop with Jeff and Randy at thedigitalphotworkshops workshop in two days!

I shot this photo with my camera while seated a distance away while Dave Black and other classmates shined and moved the Brinkman lights over Delicate Arch. So I didn't really create this photo. The man behind the scenes, our teacher, Dave Black, created the idea and implemented it while I was told the settings to use. Lighting something properly is a work of art I could see. I'm posting Dave's website link below this photo. Hope you check out his work. He has been an accomplished working photographer his entire life.

Well, I have to say I’ve never been to a better workshop ever. Check out my friend Jeff Leimbach’s photography workshop website.

Here’s what I wrote to Jeff today (although his mailbox is full so he hasn’t seen my note to him yet):
Boy, what a great workshop you put on! I am so impressed with your ability to give equal attention to all attendees, incredibly full photo op days, expertise and help with Lightroom and Photoshop and most of all the the love and service attitude that permeates throughout the workshop. And……what a picker you have in your choice of guest instructor, Dave Black. What a REMARKABLE man with sooooo much expertise/experience and that he too humbly and willingly shares with all. I learned so much from you, Randy (who I adore), and Dave. I’ve never felt more relaxed in any of the many workshops I’ve attended. Can’t wait for Page, Arizona.

Park Avenue monuments in Arches National Park. This is where we spent our last morning shooting......shooting in pools of hand carried water poured into rock pools located in the flat just beyond the road. This is a 6 shot pano merged in Photoshop.

Here's our group!

And here is one of my favorite photos from the workshop. We were on our stomachs, cameras on the ground in front of the water we placed in a depression in the hard rock to capture this morning reflection.

And as if I hadn't had enough photography, I went out 1 hour after I got home last night to shoot this.


On The Road Again.

Today’s eight hour drive headed for Moab, Utah went by fast. There were two highlights in my day…..First was a two hour lunch in Vegas with Connie. It’s always a joy spending time with Connie (even when she’s crying:-) I’m hoping we’ll get to visit again on my way home from this Photography Workshop I’m taking. Second highlight of the day was the incredible setting sun light coupled with the stormy looking sky, and……a big AND….. that after checking into the Marriott in Fairfield, Ut I unpacked and left the room and drove around town looking for photo ops.

With such an incredible background how could I not take a picture of my new car.

Neat houses in this little town.
