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.



I can't believe that Alison and I have lived here for five and half years and still haven't climbed this (it's about an hour away). While you can't see it, the highest point in Texas (Guadalupe peak) is right behind this cliff face (El Capitan).

I'm also surprised at how much I've been enjoying using this weird looking effect on my pictures. Here is a tutorial which shows the basic steps I follow to create this look. I think the tutorial shows you how to create it in photoshop, but it also works fine in the paintshop pro version I use.

    Atish, I've gotten to be a fan of that effect too. This picture was taken with a Canon Rebel XT. This is one of the older digital SLRs out there, but I love it. I just checked the info, and I used a cheapo 28-80mm Tamaron lens. It usually doesn't take that great of picture, but this one turned out okay.

    Hey, and your blog is looking good. I'm glad it worked out for you!


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.
