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.

the grass is always greener on the other side of the ruins


Sorry I missed yesterday; I had two trips for work on Monday and Tuesday, so I haven't been around a computer to post a new picture.

Today's picture is from "inside" the ruins of the Great Hall at Kenilworth Castle. This castle was gutted along with many others around 1656 so that they would not be a threat to the crown. Kenilworth is a fascinating place, and it was my favorite spot we went to when Alison and I were in England three years ago (thanks for taking us there, Christi).

    This is one of my favorite Kenilworth photos. One thing I like is that you can see how lush the green grass is. The whole place was so beautiful.

    Christi, I love all your photos of Kenilworth too! Yours are much better than mine. Sadly, I couldn't get any interesting pictures from there and this is my best one. I feel like I had a wasted photography day while in two of the greatest locations (Warwick Castle and Kenilworth). Oh well, I guess that means I'll just have to go back ;-)

    LOL! I keep looking at this photo and wondering how I missed this angle...this photo is just gorgeous...I love how you can see all the detail of the stone up at the top where the moss is growing on it.

    If you ever do make it back, you have to go visit Sudely...it's in the same area as these and was also bombed during the civil war, but was partially rebuilt, so it is part ruin, part fully functioning castle...just gorgeous....hmmmm, I need to go dig out those photos. I may need to scrapbook more of them.

    There's just something romantic about old ruins. I have no doubt that life wasn't perfect for the people that lived there, but I like to pretend that they all lived a fairy tale. I can't pass up exploring an old ruin, so thanks for letting me live through your photos.

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 (alisonbryantwrites.com), 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 www.needHim.org. Thanks again for coming and stop by again soon.
