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.


another glorieta shot

After being in Glorieta/Albuquerque a couple of weeks ago, life got even busier and I haven't had much time to get the shots from that trip off the camera and resized. Well, I spent a couple of hours last night working on pictures for this blog, so you may see quite a few more shots from there in the next couple of weeks. I also took a trip to Midland over the weekend and took a few good ones while at the Petroleum Museum, so you'll be seeing some of those as well. Anyway, since it is Monday and I like starting Mondays with a great shot, here's one from that trip which I really like. This was a shot taken at f/9 for 30 seconds.

I was on uneven ground, and since I couldn't get the tripod level, I rotated this shot about 2 degrees in Paint Shop Pro X2 to get it to be straight. I don't do much photo editing for this blog, but I actually do a lot with graphics at the church, and a program like Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro really is essential gear for me. X2 is the latest version of Paint Shop Pro, and I have been using it for about a month, and I love it. I have been a Paint Shop Pro fan since version #4. I also have used versions 7, 9 and X2 (which is version 12). This is a highly powerful yet easy to use graphic editing program which I would recommend to just about anyone. Plus, you can get an OEM version of X2 for under $35 right now which is a great price for some awesome software (especially since Photoshop is about $500 and this can give it a run for it's money). If you need a cheap but good graphic editing program, you should check it out.

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.
