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.

This picture is titled "Birds on the Beach in Flight" and was taken at the California State Park Beach at Half Moon Bay, California on July 29. 2008 at 10:04 A.M.. I used my Pentax K10D camera with an exposure setting of 1/250 second and a lens setting at f8. Shot it at while panning the birds as the took off around me. ISO was at 100, with a focal length of 115mm (that translated to 172mm with a focal length in 35mm film). Shot it with a spot metering mode and no flash for fill. Really didn't have a lot of time to think about the shot or focal length. Just pointed and paned and when the pelican was in view, click. This was the result.
