That first hint of color in the Eastern sky....that breaking of first light upon the landscape....that aniticipation and wonder of how God Almighty will decorate His creation this novel day .... These are the fleeting moments which inspire and motivate the capture of the photographs here. Photography gives me the means in which to relive those amazing moments and revisit the emotions they inspire. Rolling countrysides, grand mountainscapes and our great American hertiage compose the bulk of my "artistic" interest. My hope is that in viewing the galleries here that you too will also pause and be inspired by the awesome wonder of God's creation. These images speak to that which we so often take for granted- miracles that are indeed no accident at all. Light, life, family and beauty are all precious gifts to be cherished. My photographic pursuit seeks to translate my intrique into pleasing images that hopefully inspire the viewer. Maybe they are just pleasing pictures to peer at, or maybe they help us pause to ask deeper questions. Again, there are no accidents. Whether its admiring first light on the horizon, cherishing that first time you held your newborn, or just exercising the American freedoms thousands have died for, these precious moments and gifts point to a transcending Creator greater than ourselves. I believe in the objective truths of scriputure revealed in the Holy Bible and it answers my deepest yearnings. In Christ I find my rest, my peace and my joy. Its from this standpoint that I'm ready to fill my photobackpack and hike a pre-dawn trail or endure freezing winds and temperatures for just that "right light." His allure and His essence await. With my camera in hand and some planning, these images are the results! They are my vision and a testimony to His faithfulness. I hope too you can agree.
