Default Georgepat's Daily Diary of Digital Delight

I have thought long and hard about undertaking this endeavorer.
It's true that I carry my main camera and a point and shoot with me everyday, but some days I never touch them. I see opportunities for shots, but just can't be bothered to actually go and shoot something.
I feel that this will give me a very good reason to get off my butt and finally take those shots.
Starting tomorrow the challenge begins...

Congrats GeorgePat! Way to self motivate! You know, it's a hard thing to do that. Some people literally never accomplish this sort of behavior. Your effort won't be in vain, I know I'm looking forward to sharing in your experiences, and learning from you.

Best of luck,
~Starbucks Jay

That's exactly how I looked at it George.... I now make it routine to photograph something every day. Looking forward to your joining in here.

Congrats George and I can't wait to see what you come up with, knowing the quality of your other work! It is true, any kind of continual project does force us to see things we normally wouldn't see, and holds us accountable! We promise we won't beat up on you for missing a day here and there either, if that happens, it happens! Welcome to the fold, happy posting!

DAY 1
First a small history lesson.

I live on 35 acres of forested land in the George Washington National Forest with my wife, two dogs, two cats, and a tortoise named Cleo.

My nearest neighbor (other than my son) is over a mile away.
The nearest city of any size is 25 miles away, and my work is 15 miles away.

The road I travel at least twice a day is a twisty, turning mountain road that has a beautiful creek on one side, and rocks, trees, and every now and again, a house on the other.

That is what I see every day going and coming from work. I am constantly looking for interesting things to shoot, and have been known to stop in the road and do so.

At work my window looks out over a field with a corpse of trees, a cell phone tower, and behind that is a breathtaking view of House Mountain.

This morning when I arrived at work the sky was dark, and the stars were still evident. As the sun rose behind me winking out the stars one by one and casting slivers of light, a small herd of Black Angus cows appeared in the field munching on grass.

My first shot is of the scene when the trees were sunlit, but the field and cows were still in deep shadow.

The second shot (not taken today) shows House Mountain on a day when the blue haze that always seems to surround it was not quite as bad.

The third one is a shot of the morning mist over the valley below lifting as the sunlight hit it.

beautiful shots. Awesome view. That second one is amazing. I'm so glad to be starting my 365 on the same day as you.
