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 like how this picture sort of has a vintage feel. That's great for a vintage place like this.

...what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—His eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. - Romans 1:19-20

I think nature speaks to God's existence more loudly in autumn than in any other time. I also love this quote:

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.
Albert Camus

And you Carlsbad people, try to enjoy those 99 degree temps forecast for today!

a puzzling post per pig pictures Saturday, August 14, 2010 | 5

I need to start off by saying that I'm sorry if this post doesn't make sense to you. My family is passing around a pig that you don't want to get. While he was at our house, we put him to work - as a trailer chock and a lawn care professional.

a cup of coffee and a sermon on love Wednesday, August 11, 2010 | 0

That's what you're seeing in this picture. This was taken at a church service in Vancouver that takes place on a college campus. This is the pastor and I snuck a quick picture with the camera sitting on the table. I use a SLR, which means that with my camera, I can only see what I am taking a picture of by looking through the viewfinder. So, I took a picture without looking, and then I could see how it looked on my display for the 2 seconds it would show up there. I would then adjust the camera and take another picture. Adjust. Take picture. You get the idea.

And for the record, I don't think it was near as distracting as this post makes it seem like. :-)

a foggy night Monday, August 09, 2010 | 3

Here is a picture taken late one night in Vancouver last February. There was fog moving into harbor and I had to take a picture of it. I didn't have a tripod which was a real shame, because I could have gotten a great shot if I had. As it was, I balanced this on the fence with my hands the best I could and guessed on the length of time for the best exposure. This was a 13 second long exposure, and the camera shook quite a bit (thankfully it's not as noticeable in this smaller blog size). Even though it has some shake and blur, the cool look of the fog over the water is forcing me to post it anyway.

The rings Saturday, August 07, 2010 | 0

This is a picture that I'm sure Alison took since it was taken with her camera. This was the view of the Olympic rings in the Vancouver harbor. That blue building on the right is actually Canada Place, which is where Alison and I left for our Alaska cruise in 2008. And the Olympic cauldron is just to the right of the building, but you can't see it in this picture.

survivors Wednesday, August 04, 2010 | 1

There was a forest fire that swept across this hill about 8 years ago. With the sunrise backlighting them, it is easy to see which trees survived and which did not.

I want a peaceful picture Tuesday, August 03, 2010 | 1

I find this picture peaceful. :-)

Sorry for posting so late today.

Reflections of Creation

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.
