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”.

    This one’s too beautiful, Phil. I love the ripples and their colors, the twisting “path” to the sun, the circle kind of “aura” around the setting sun, and the darkest silhouettes in the far mid-distance. The blue just ahead of “my feet” in the ripples gives this great depth: playing off a gainst the purple (red) of the tops of the sand ripples. this one’s amaster-piece, Phil. It really is.
