Come and join me in this place of peace and quiet rest. You can set your worries aside for awhile and gaze upon the beauty of God's creation.



Captivated by the Creator

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.

John 1:3

Nature thrills my heart and makes me feel close to God. I see His touch in everything He made, in the colors, patterns, and shapes of creation. The unique scents and sounds of nature excite my senses. I love to inhale the sweet fragrance of flowers, and listen to palm trees swishing in the breeze. 

        I hope my photos let you escape, for a moment, into the beauty of God's world. I hope they transport you to a place where you can hear God whispering your name.  

Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. (Lamentations 3:22-23)

You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them. (Psalm 89:9)
