The Brilliance of Our Creator

As I walked upon the beautiful ocean shores this past weekend, I found myself amazed by everything… The incredible sea life, the rippling waves, the delicate sand. It was all so beautiful and majestic. As the wind blew through my hair, and my skirt flowed freely in the salty air, I couldn’t help but think about how intricate God made each thing on earth. As He painted this life, so much love and beauty was instilled. It is impossible for man to observe creation without admiring all of its loveliness.

As I captured the following photographs, I truly saw that loveliness in our Lord’s creation!

You are so right Jenna...
He is a majestic King of kings.
Those pictures you took captured God's beauty. They show how God makes things so beautiful.
I barely have the words to describe His loveliness.
Thank you for this beautiful post showing God's wonders.
God Bless!

A Servant for Christ,

These are so great, Jenna! The shot of the crab sinking into the sand is my favorite. Beautiful! :)

Photography has a way of making you slow down and really see what is in front of you, doesn't it? I really appreciate that about it, because I have always struggled with fully perceiving what's around me.

Beautiful work Jenna!

Grace said...

Wow! Indeed, God's creation shows his handiwork.

Beautiful photos, dear friend! I hope that one day we might meet and I can show you our Pacific ocean, and you can show me your Atlantic!:)

Blessings, dearest!

These photos are incredible, Jenna!! I loved seeing them! All creation does indeed praise the name of the Lord God, the Creator of all. His hand is so clearly seen in all of creation around us . . . in the beauty, the detail, the complexity, the variety. Thank you for sharing!

I had to show my parents all of these photos as well :) as they are just so beautiful . . . I love the crispness and color clarity that you have in your photos. And how close-up you can get to the birds!

Not only I, but my family was also wondering, what lens(es) do you use? I would be very curious to know! I love photographing birds, but the lens that I have just can't do the job very well as I can't get close enough with it. For my birthday, I did get a set of macro lenses so I am really looking forward to using those on insects, flowers, and other things such as the starfish in your last photo. But I would really like to have a lens sometime that can do bird photography, too!

Your photos are so inspiring to me to work more on my photography! :)
