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”.

    I share a similar experience; I went to a large pond that I frequented in previous years just yesterday to find trash floating in every corner. I felt both sadness and anger to see that humanity pollutes and disfigures the natural beauty that was given to us . . .

    Trash is bad.. Did you make the honorable decision to rid such a beautiful place of it?
    That said, what an amazing reflective image… The eye is lead perfectly into the main subject and its sharp as a tack when you get to it.
    photography can explore a million different possibilities and you found the 998,463rd possible image type.
    great stuff stuff Phil Thomson.!
