Afloat Just the Same

Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you. (1Peter 5.6)

Those Who Go Down to the Sea in Ships

Those who go down to the sea in ships, Who do business on great waters; They have seen the works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep.
(Psalm 107.23-24)

He Makes the Dawn and the Sunset to Shout for Joy

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:

Antelope Canyon, Page, Arizona

The two people in this last photo gives some perspective on the size of these slot canyons.  When it rains, the canyons are closed, for people have died as the water rushes through the canyons, filling them up with a raging river.  It doesn't even have to rain in the area, for water from thunder storms miles away comes crashing into these canyons unexpectedly.  For years, the local native culture would not allow their people to venture in these "sacred" cliffs, believing they were places spirits lived.  I think the truth of the matter is that these places were so dangerous due to flash floods that they had to find a way to keep people out or they would become "spirits" when the floods came.

Into the Sunset

Clay in the Potter's Hands

Does not the potter have a right over the clay, to make from the same lump one vessel for honorable use and another for common use? What if God, although willing to demonstrate His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much patience vessels of wrath prepared for destruction? And He did so to make known the riches of His glory upon vessels of mercy, which He prepared beforehand for glory, even us, whom He also called, not from among Jews only, but also from among Gentiles.

Care Net Conference, 2012

It was an honor to be invited to be the official photographer for the annual Care Net Conference held this year in Nashville's Gaylord Opryland Hotel.  You can view the conference gallery here:

This was my fifth year as their conference photographer and it is a delight every year to be invited to participate in this way.  I would be attending the conference anyway as a participant, but being able to be their photographer is such a blessing!

North Alton Falls

 "Deep calls to deep at the sound of Your waterfalls" (Psalm 42.7)
North Alton Waterfalls ... I love how the water swirls at both sides of the pool ... The first second image is one day later after heavy rains.

... within one minute the fog had rushed in off the sea like a wall so thick I could barely see the lighthouse ...
