How I know God guides my photography.....

"The heavens declare the glory of God, and the skies announce what his hands have made. Day after day they tell the story; night after night they tell it again. They have no speech or words; they have no voice to be heard. But their message goes out through all the world; their words go everywhere on earth."
Psalm 19: 1 - 4 (NCV).

Every time I look through the lens of my camera I see God working. Every day He reveals His majesty. Every night He shows me how He creates beauty even in the darkness. Even if I had not known Him before I started taking photos, the moment I looked at His creation up close (or far away) I see His glory and He guides me to see His beauty in all He has created. Photography just allows me to capture an image of what He has created.

Another one of my favorite shots to take is just before sunset or just after sun rise. The angle of the sun can make or break a shot. This one if of Lake Don Pedro (just East of La Grange, California off Hwy 132 (between Bonds Flat Road and Zarzamora St). Shot was taken on January 1, 2007 about 4:36 P.M.. Again, the DSLR Pentax ISO 100, Focal length 20mm (focal length at 35mm film was 30mm). Timing was 1/90 of a second at F6.7. Angled my camera parallel to the sun and shot across the lake with a slight fog/haze bank in the distance. The sun just played with the lake, hills, and sky. Timing was everything. A few minutes sooner or later would not have produced the same results. I was very lucky to be passing by when I did.
