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.


a funny nativity story

There are three things you should know about today's picture.

1) Our Christmas decorations are not up yet, but I wanted to take some sort of Christmas picture tonight, so I pulled this out. No decorations up yet: strike one.

2) When I opened up the nativity set, we apparently have had a nativity scene angel rapture. I
jokingly thought, "God removed His representative because He does not want me to take pictures of this." Strike two.

3) I decided to keep batting though, and set up our nativity (sans angel of course). We have a stable with this nativity set, and I put one one of these candles right up to the edge of it to give some light to Mary's face. Guess what? I caught the moss on the roof of the stable on fire. So, we didn't have an angel, but we did have a flaming star of Bethlehem.

The stable is fine with no real damage to anything, but I hoped you'd find this story as hilarious as I do.

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.
