Reflections of Creation

One of the greatest things that God has given humans is the ability to see beauty in the world around us. I have never noticed my dog stop and stare at the beauty of a forest or the incredible colors of a sunset, but these things have the ability to stop me in my tracks in wonder and awe. This website is my attempt to capture some of the beauty and glory of an indescribable God by capturing reflections of Him that I see in His creation.

This was taken with some of the teenagers in my youth group last May. We are at a relay for life event, and it was about one in the morning when this was taken. One of my favorite parts in this half second exposure is the little tongue of flame sitting there above the rest of the fire (you may need to enlarge the photo by clicking on it to see this). It's amazing to me how God made fire where it can leap like that.

On a different note, this will be last picture for a few days. I'll be back Monday with something else, so I'll see you then.

here's digital photography hint for you: If you have a digital camera, most models will record tons of stuff about your pictures. This includes photography stuff like your aperature and shutter speed, but it also includes things like what time you took the picture. That is how I know 8 months later exactly when this picture was taken. All of this info is embedded in your picture into something called the EXIF information. If you search for a freeware EXIF reader, it should not be too difficult to find one (or your favorite graphics program may have this ability built in).

the most important part of this website

I enjoy photography and I always find myself wanting more time to be outside with a camera. The idea of posting my pictures was born out of the love for my wife, Alison (, who hates it when I do not take my days off. This website, reflections of creation, is a way to force me to get out of the office from time to time and putting me outside where I love to be. While a creative outlet for me, I hope this is an encouraging site for you, and one which helps point you to the Creator of all this beauty around us. God is so much bigger and amazing than we could ever imagine, and He loves you and me! What an amazing thought! He loves us so much that He was even willing to let His son, Jesus, die as a sacrifice for us. That fact is more beautiful than any picture you will see on this website. I hope you know Jesus, but if you do not, please email me or go to Thanks again for coming and stop by again soon.
