How Many Are Your Works, O Lord…

|

How many are your works, O LORD! In wisdom you made them all. Especially in the natural world, God’s masterful handiwork is evident everywhere you look. What breathtaking things He has made for us to see and enjoy! In nature, I “see” God, and I feel Him very closely. God is there in the streaks … Continued

Postcard from Acadia

|

This scene conveys a sense of peace to me, which is how I came to pair it with the benediction from Paul’s letter to the Romans. I made this photo a few weeks ago at Acadia National Park in Maine. The conditions were quite challenging the entire time I was on location. Between brisk, sustained … Continued

New Hampshire’s Big Show

|

Before I moved to New Hampshire, I wasn’t exactly a fan of autumn. When I lived in the Midwest, the transition to frosty nights, leaves turning and dropping – all it meant for me was rake, rake, rake – blisters, blisters, blisters. It also was a stark reminder of what was to come. Winter. (I’m … Continued

Best Spots in New Hampshire

|

Born and raised in Illinois, I’m at my core a Midwesterner and always will be, even though I’ve lived other places – some far removed. But there’s something about New Hampshire…. After having been here for many years – and having spent nearly that entire time exploring the length and width of the state with … Continued

October Hosts a Party

|

…and each year I’m lucky enough to receive an invitation! I’ve seen beautiful autumn colors in Vermont, Maine, upstate New York, and North Carolina’s mountain country – but to me, there’s nothing like the party New Hampshire hosts each October. I consider myself extremely lucky to live so close to the White Mountains – just … Continued

Amazing Fall Colors!

Last week while I was on a shoot in the White Mountains, I found one of the most interesting sumac plants I’ve ever seen. If you live in parts of the country with sumac, you know it turns amazing shades of deep red and magenta in the autumn. Sometimes, some of the leaves will display … Continued

Let Him Lead You

|

With all your heart you must trust the Lord and not your own judgment. Always let him lead you, and he will clear the road for you to follow. That passage from the third chapter of Proverbs is a favorite of many. It’s paired here with a shot of the Mount Washington (NH) auto road. … Continued

Autumn in the Beautiful White Mountains

|

I was in the White Mountains of New Hampshire for a few days last week on a photo shoot. The color this year is spectacular. After a few consecutive autumns with very muted color due to overabundant rain, this season the hues are rich and vibrant. In particular, the deep, radiant reds (which are the … Continued

Morning Light

|

From October to March, the rising sun’s rays first touch the United States at the spot where the photo below was made: the summit of Cadillac Mountain at Acadia National Park in Maine. After days of poor weather, the skies finally delivered this lovely sunrise. What a way to start the day! (Yes, it took … Continued

New Day Dawning

|

Light is sweet; how pleasant to see a new day dawning. I was at Acadia National Park last week for a few days on a photo shoot. The conditions were terrible! Rain, sustained high winds, you name it. On this morning, it was intermittently sleeting and raining with high winds at daybreak on the summit … Continued
