Color Programming

Ever wonder how the yellow color gets programmed to spread only so far on the flower?  What kind of Artist could create such an amazing work of color and design which grows from a seed?

Florida Sunset

A few years ago I attended a meeting in Florida.  It was about this time of year.  This was the sunset one evening looking out of my hotel room.  The terrain below looks different than anything here in the Northwest.  Everything above the horizon, though, could be anywhere in the world.  We have a lot in common don't we?

Emerging Stronger

Before long these trees will sprout leaves and buds and be bearing fruit. They have successfully made it through the harsh elements of winter to emerge stronger than they were.  It's the same with us after we go through trials in life... isn't it?

Appreciating Color

 I'm glad God gave us the ability to see colors...

otherwise it would look like this.

Rainbow Promise

I caught this rainbow yesterday afternoon near Albany, OR.  It was actually a double rainbow but I couldn't get the second one to show up on the images. 

Rainbows are amazing.  After the great flood God made a covenant that He would never flood the earth again and when the rainbow appears it's a reminder of that promise.  What an incredible love note.

Downtown Colors

My wife has been out of town on a business this past week.  Last night on the way to pick her up at the airport I stopped downtown along the river with camera and tripod to take some exposures.  The reflections make the city look bigger.

It's been about a year since last doing night shots downtown.  Just when I was beginning to have fun I realized I needed to get to the airport. 

Lately the desire to do photography has all but dried up.  Going to a different location and going in the evening has given a boost to the desire.
