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”.

    Cool image, Phil. The thing I like most is the focal point is static and in focus….as it should be….but the background has a sense of movement about it. due to its being out of focus. Oh dear, I’ve given away my ignorance of photography. All I know is…I like it because it’s Very different :-)
