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”.

    Ah! I envy you being in a position to take this great shot. He enjoys his music so much and that enjoyment spills into the crowds be they large or small. I would love to experience his music live, but make do with DVD’s.
