Early morning on a very rough and windy morning on Gibson Steps beach in the Twelve Apostles National Park, on The Great Ocean Road.
Genesis 1:31
And God saw every thing that He had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

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”.
