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”.

    We still have some swing and some rising bridges here in the US Pacific northwest area, but with less boat use, they don’t move so often. I remember waiting for them all the time as a kid.
