Gravel Road

Gravel roads, paved roads, dirt roads it doesn’t matter because I’m a sucker for road shots. It’s too bad you can’t always stand in the middle of them to take a shot. Luckily for this one I could.

“Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the word of his servant? Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the LORD and rely on their God” – Isaiah 50:10

30 Seconds at Sunset

Here’s a 30 second exposure at Poipu Beach in Kauai, Hawaii just after sunset. I remember there being a kid there snorkeling around with a light. I thought it was kind of cool at first but then as I thought about it that probably wasn’t the best idea. Sharks are more active at dawn and dusk and, according to a Myth Busters episode I saw, they are drawn towards light. Maybe I’m just paranoid but I do think people get a false sense of security when they are close to shore especially if they haven’t spent too much time in the ocean.

“those who hope in me will not be disappointed” – Isaiah 49:23

Half Dome Blues

I took this shot of Half Dome in Yosemite National Park almost 2 years ago during the blue hour. I stuck around after it got dark to see the stars and was surprised to also see the headlamps of the climbers making camp on the side of Half Dome. I thought that was pretty cool. If you ever get the chance to go to Yosemite you should. It’s an amazing place.

“Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go'” – Isaiah 48:17

Peak View

I took this shot of Mount Rainier during a bike ride early last month up Cayuse Pass in Washington before the road was open to cars. I mentioned in a previous post that I couldn’t make it all the way to the pass because the road was blocked by snow. I’ve biked up the pass before so I wasn’t really disappointed that I couldn’t make it. This time I was there just to enjoy the views and get outdoors with my kids.

“Even to your old age and gray hairs I am he, I am he who will sustain you. I have made you and I will carry you; I will sustain you and I will rescue you” Isaiah 46:6

Boston Harbor, WA

Here’s one from Boston Harbor…Washington that is. I was surprised to find this harbor when I cruzed down to take some photos of the Dofflemeyer Point Lighthouse. I didn’t see any signs of tea partying though.

“Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other” – Isaiah 45:22

El Capitan State Beach Sunset

Here’s a sunset shot from El Capitan State Beach in California. This was one of the last photos I took after taking some shots down by the water. Sunset always seems to go by so fast when you’re in a new area exploring different angles.

“I am the Lord, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me, so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting people may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other” – Isaiah 45:5-6

Dofflemeyer Point Lighthouse

Last weekend I was at Dofflemeyer Point Lighthouse, WA for sunset. It was overcast and rainy but I decided to head out there anyway hoping for an amazing sunbreak. Unfortunately that didn’t happen but I had a good time exploring a new area. I also met a fellow photographer so that was cool.

“This is what the LORD says– Israel’s King and Redeemer, the LORD Almighty: I am the first and I am the last; apart from me there is no God” – Isaiah 44:6
