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.


Mendenhall Glacier

As promised, here are some views of Mendenhall Glacier outside of Juneau, Alaska. Alison and I got to spend a couple of hours here while we were on our Alaska cruise, and this is something to see. All of these pictures are straight off of the camera with no altering or color enhancing. I don't have the saturation raised on the camera.


Pictures can't really capture how huge this giant chunk of ice is, so here is a picture with people along the shoreline so you can compare their size to the size of the front face of this giant hunk of ice. The blue you see in places is where parts of the glacier had recently broke off. That blue color is natural to glaciers. It has something to do with the refraction of light through the special crystalline structure you find only in glaciers. God is really creative!


I hope everyone gets a chance to see a glacier in person and see how amazing God has made these things. When you travel through a glacier carved valley, it is astounding to look up on either side of you and just see mountains climbing up. While traveling through Tracy Arm Fjord (not where this glacier is found), I was floored knowing that this deep valley was caused by ice grinding away any obstacles in it's path. It was really remarkable, and a BIG reminder to me of just how big GOD is.

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.
