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.


have fun throwing your camera around!

See below for a description of how this is done and a few more pictures.

First off, let me say that I'm sorry I haven't blogged much in the past week. It hasn't been because I didn't want to. I usually blog about 10 at night and then date it for midnight. But almost every night this last week, I fell asleep while getting ready to blog. So, I'm sorry, but I'll give you a bunch of pictures tonight to make up for it.

Alright, now here's the fun stuff; the picture above is a picture of my Christmas tree. I heard about taking pictures this way, and I tried it out tonight on our tree (white lights) and on one at the church (the colored lights). Here's how it works. Take a camera with a manual setting or else put it on a setting where your shutter speed will be about a half second to a second. As the picture takes, just toss your camera in the air. By tossing it in different ways, you can get very different pictures. My favorite toss was the double wounded duck backflip. It made some very interesting patterns.

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.
