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.


As messy as my office

This is a tree from Alpine, TX which I took last May. The sad part is, this is more organized than my office. And for the record, I can't stand this picture, but maybe someone else will like it.

    i do like it, in a weird chaotic sort of way. i'll bet we could make some kind of a spiritual lesson out of it... like how twisted and tangled our lives are but when we cling to a firm foundation... ?? something like that?!

    oh, and it goes GREAT with my word verification for this post: slumsit. too apropos and funny! :)

    Hi Dave,

    Great post! It reminds me of some of our lives. We're tangled up in things that probably shouldn't get our attention. Very Insightful pic!

    mind praying for the prayer requests that are

    I like the chaos of it with the firm foundation of the tree trunk seems to be very symbolic (and pretty in a strange way.) I officially like it. smiles...

    Hello neighbor from Odessa. I actually live in Carlsbad, but I grew up even closer to you - in Midland.

    Thanks for stopping by!


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.
