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.

something different from reality weekend Wednesday, October 29, 2008 | 0

This is a picture from Reality Weekend which took up all my time the last couple of weeks. The projection in the background is where we put up song lyrics (no lyrics were up when I took this picture).

Just a quick heads up - I will not be posting anything again until probably Monday. So, see you in four days.


just an interesting subject Wednesday, October 22, 2008 | 2

I don't think this picture is "artsy" or anything worth putting up here, except for the fact that you guys have never seen this amazing sight that Alison and I saw a few months ago. This is the remains of a gigantic western red cedar tree that is from the Seattle area. This is at a rest stop about an hour outside of Seattle. I shouldn't have been surprised since we were around Seattle, but this rest stop had free coffee (4 different kinds too). It's like a rest stop made in heaven.

shot down, oct 14, 1943 Friday, October 17, 2008 | 2


Gunfire. Engines sputtering. The thwack of a parachute opening. These are sounds that most of us will not ever experience, but they have had a profound effect on us and this country.

This picture is from the B25 "Pacific Prowler" I posted last week. Soldiers signed inside the bomb bay, and this is one of the inscriptions that got my attention. I do not know what happened on that October day in 1943, but this inscription filled me with all kinds of emotion almost 65 years later. I cannot imagine what these airmen went through that day, and it would be foolhardy to try and understand what they felt. I can imagine the anticipation felt the night before the mission. I can sense the nervousness as the wheels left the ground. I'm sure the fear sucked these soldier's breath away once they realized their plane would not make it.

I do not know what happened, but I am thankful for those soldiers who risked and possibly gave their lives that day so you and I could still be free today.

To all of our veterans and current soldiers serving in the military, I want to say thank you. Your sacrifice is greatly appreciated and this country would not be what it is without your willingness to serve and your unselfish attitudes.

Here is a picture from the cruise taken by Alison. How cold? I think this is the only time all week that I wore my toboggan.

It's cropped, but I knew I'd have to crop it when I took the picture.


Reflections of Creation

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.
