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”.

    That would look great on a tee. :) It’s got a Panama Jack feel to it and it’s so so pretty Phil. I like how you filled in the frame, pushing the subject all the way to the sides of the frames. I think the burning heat makes a great balance with the cool of the silhouette too. Dreamy stuff. :)
