I would love to have one of these dogs, the Great Dane. The man let me take a picture.


The Alpine Meadows Adaptive Skiing Center makes me so happy.


There were two people helping this little skier. The next day I saw two people helping a blind skier. Skiing feels really good, the fresh pine-scented air blowing on your face and the feeling of gliding. The center makes all kinds of innovative equipment to help people with different disabilities.

Here is the last photo of this vacation.


I do have a few more to show you, which I will do when I get home.

Happy Tuesday, or Wednesday, as the case may be.

    1. Thank, Laurie. I realized that was where I needed to take the Lake Tahoe picture, because of the tree. But now that I look at it, I see there’s a lot more going on with the various mountains showing three-dimensional space. So thanks for calling my attention back to this so that I will remember to try to compose landscape shots that way.

      1. It’s always good to have something leading your eye into a picture Nia. The more you can do in camera the better the pic. 🙂

      2. That’s a good way of thinking about a landscape shot. I love landscapes but don’t really know what makes one really pop, so thank you! (I’ve asked for a wide-angle lens for my birthday. 🙂 )

      3. Things like furrowed fields, lines of trees, arcs of any type. Anything that draws your eye towards the subject. With my canon 17-200mm lens I tend to use it at around 17-20mm for landscapes, then crop the pic to my needs. I’m just too tight to buy another lens. 🙂
