I decided early on that one of the best ways to get adjusted here in Montana was to immediately get involved in anything I could. Within our first couple of weeks, we were camping with friends and meeting new ones, the boys were signed up for swim lessons, Ray and I joined the local gym and we started attending church. I figured the sooner we got out doing whatever we could and meeting new people, the sooner it would feel like home.
While waiting for the semester to begin, I ran across a summer class being offered that peaked my interest.... Beginning Landscape and Wildlife Photography. Of course, I signed right up for it. I go one night a week for seven weeks and should have a better handle on some photo basics when all is said and done. We've had two class meetings so far, just covering some real basics at this point. I think we will really be getting into the "meat and potatoes" of it soon.
Our instructor gave us a theme for our picture assignment this week. The theme was "Sail Away". Here is my submission.
