Creation Declares the Glory of God

What a morning it was with the hoarfrost decorating the landscape. What a surprise to wake up to be surrounded by such beauty! This is the kind of beauty that we don't even have to pay for but just enjoy.

And enjoy I did. The fog draped trees and roadside were all dressed out, ready for a photo session. There was beauty everywhere I turned. What breathtaking sights.

Here are some pictures from this morning. Enjoy!

Seasons

The lush greens of spring and summer are beginning to give way to the golden yellows and browns of fall. The monarchs drink deeper of the nectar and wild flowers release their seeds in search of new life. Summer has past, fall is near. For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Iowa in September

This is a beautiful time of year in Iowa! It was fun getting out in the country earlier this week. And the New Covenant trail and pond is also picturesque in September. There's nothing like getting out in nature to refresh your soul. Enjoy!

Geyer's Oven

We enjoyed our evening at Geyer's Oven. Dave and Anna Geyer have own a farm near Oxford, Iowa. Two nights a month they make pizza in their stone wood-fired oven for all who show up at the farm! A $10 donation gets you all the pizza you can eat! Anna also has a beautiful flower garden. It was a wonderful evening with good food, great weather, fun conversation and beautiful scenery. Enjoy!

Natural Beauty

I enjoyed going to Noelridge Park late this afternoon and getting some macro shots. What a beautiful world we live in! I'm thankful that I can capture and share a small piece of it. Enjoy!

Sanctuary

I spent some time at Weir and Mary's "bird sanctuary" this morning. What an awesome place. I enjoyed the peace and solitude along with the beauty of nature. And yes, there were birds too - Chickadee, White Breasted Nut Hatch, House Finch, Hummingbird, Downy Woodpecker and Hairy Woodpecker. Enjoy!

Grand Design

I have enjoyed experimenting with my new 105mm macro lens. It's an older lens but still does a great job! Close up photography reveals the hidden beauty and intricate design of creation. We are surrounded by incredible beauty all around us. He who has eyes, let him or her see. Enjoy!

Morning Flowers

I enjoyed getting out on Saturday and this morning to shoot some flowers. The beauty and incredible design of creation never ceases to amaze me. Enjoy!

Evening Light

Sharon and I took a walk a couple nights ago right before sunset. The light was beautiful. Take time to enjoy the journey.
