Beauty & wonder

What I love most about photography is its ability to show the world in a whole new way. When I am taking pictures, I’m looking at things differently.

I’m looking for the beauty.

In faces, in arrangements of things, in nature, in lighting. I’m looking at it with an eye to appreciate, and to show others that as well. I’m looking with intentional awe and wonder.

And my favorite thing to do with the resulting images is to share them. To inspire others to awe as well. My goal in nature photographs is to inspire the world to praise the Creator. May these few images be a blessing to you and a reason to praise Him today.

  1. Wow, thank you for sharing! These are lovely! I recently finished reading Notes from the Tilt-A-Whirl by N.D. Wilson, and when you talked about intentionally searching for wonder in the world, I immediately thought of it. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend! 😀
