I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    The depth of colour and the wonderful scenes of your photography never cease to either amaze ~ or inspire me. This is so beautiful Phil. Though no doubt cold, this scene emits a warmth almost unimaginable….
