Come and See

|

Come and see what God has done… Indeed! I was at Utah’s Arches National Park recently on a photo shoot. The weather was quite unpredictable due to a massive low pressure system parked over Colorado – which sent surprise after surprise in my direction. On the late afternoon/early evening this image was made, waves of … Continued

Yet Another National Park Tragedy

|

As a photographer, I spend a fair amount of time in National Parks. (Since relocating to the Intermountain West last summer, two parks are each less than 80 miles from my front door – so my visits are now even more frequent.) After all this time, you’d think the stupidity – and arrogance – of … Continued

Commencement Day, Once Upon a Time

|

Crown Him With Many Crowns

|

Crown Him with many crowns The Lamb upon His throne; Hark how the heavenly anthem drowns All music but its own. Awake, my soul, and sing Of Him who died for thee And hail Him as thy matchless King Through all eternity. Crown Him the Virgin’s Son, The God incarnate born, Whose arm those crimson … Continued
