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.


Initial thoughts about Alaska

For those of you who don't know, Alison and I got home tonight from the Alaskan cruise we just took. We left on April 27th on the Norwegian Star and had an incredible time. We stopped off in three ports, Ketchikan, Juneau and Prince Rupert, and we spent a couple of days at sea on the ship. We saw sea lions, eagles, three glaciers, mountain goats, seagulls, sea stars, fog, sunshine, and tons of stores selling touristy junk which of course we bought a lot of. We had a great time and took way too many pictures.

I know that this first picture is what most people think of when we think about Alaska. I also know that I might have to fight off an angry mob if I didn't post at least some sort of landscape shot. While landscapes are not what I'm best at, here's one of the hundreds like it I now have :-)

This shot is from Ketchikan, and this is what we saw a lot of. There were a lot of low clouds and fog on our trip, and I love fog.

This final shot is from Tracy Arm Fjord and this ice is coming from the North Sawyer Glacier.

    The 3rd one is definitely my favorite, but they are all gorgeous! I am so jealous. Was it really cold? smiles...

    We were excited about going this early, because we wanted it to be cold. The weather was actually pretty nice. There were a couple of cold moments, but overall it was the perfect temperature in my opinion. We had a balcony cabin, and we loved sitting out on it while drinking some hot chocolate and soaking up the incredible scenery.

    What was strange was having lows in the mid 40s and highs in the low to mid 50s. There was not much of a degree swing on most days.

    okay, that sounds incredibly romantic...sitting on your balcony, snuggling under a blanket, drinking hot chocolate, looking at this. I am sooooo, jealous isn't the right word...more reminiscent. We did something similar on a moonlit sleigh ride in Austria. You just reminded me of a wonderful memory. Thank you! I love living vicariously through you guys on this trip!!! smiles...


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.
