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.

The Barn at Deavers Winery

I get a lot of joy when I see a storm coming. The bigger the clouds, the better I like it. This is a photo of the barn (thus the title: The Barn at Deavers Winery) at Deavers Winery in the Shenandoah Valley near Plymouth, California. This was shot about 12:46 PM on Saturday, December 17, 2008. I didn't have my DSLR with me (only my 8.1 MB Sony DSC-W150). Auto focus took this shot at a focal length of 5mm (talk about a wide angle) and F 3.3 (1/1000 of a second exposure). You really don't need an expensive camera to get a great shot. You just need to keep an eye open and if you see something that interests you, well, that's the time to stop and take the shot. This enlarges to an 11X14 print very nicely.
