My digital photography to celebrate the wonder of God's creation in praise of His name. If a sunset is majestic, it's because God is majestic. If a child is delightful, it's because God is delightful. If a flower is beautiful, it's because God is beautiful. God did not create anything that gives us more pleasure than Himself. "Finally ... whatever is lovely ... if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things." - Philippians 4:8

Horseshoe Bend, Page, Arizona
The river flows from a dam about a ten minute drive to the right of this photo (below) and continues down to the left and winds its way through the Grand Canyon, about a three hour dive away.
It was surreal walking up to this cliff from behind at 5:00 AM before the sunrise. In the dark, it just seemed to be normal desert with some rocks, and as I walked closer, the cliff opened up before me to this huge 1,000 ft. cliff to the river below (that's the same height as standing on top of a 99 storey building with no guard rails). Lying on my stomach to peer over the cliff with my arms stretched out holding the camera, it was all I could do to just lie there. It's an amazing feeling to be so high up and so close to the edge. I had to shut my eyes at times when the feeling of the cliff giving way was too strong - it was overwhelming. I came back later that night to be there for this sunset (above). God's creation is amazing! It is awe inspiring to be in such a large place and to feel so small. A beautifully humbling experience. The sunrise photos are below:
