"... all creation praises Thee"

“God, all nature sings Thy glory, 
  and Thy works proclaim Thy might;
  Ordered vastness in the heavens, 
  ordered course of day and night;
  Beauty in the changing seasons, 
  beauty in the storming sea;
  All the changing moods of nature 
  praise the changeless Trinity."

Rick this is such a beautiful photo I had to enlarge it to take a closer look, as I do with almost all of your photos. The colors in this shot are ones which cannot be replicated my man, definitely the handiwork of our Creator.

May your day bring you joy and happiness and your internet issues be resolved. You are a patient man Rick, I think I might have thrown all of my computers out the window by now! lol

Thank you Elizabeth !

Thanks Farmchick - that was the culmination of a perfect day.

Thanks, Leslie; expresses it better than I could.

You're right, Darlene - we can only point our cameras at creation and hope to capture some of its beauty. As for the internet issues ... it's frustrating trying to make visits and watch photos slowly loading, but ... I'm learning patience. :(

Rick said...

Thank you very much Laura !

Careful, Monika ;-) Thank you - I hope your week is a good one !

Fall is like that around here Susan - creation just goes all out before it goes all out for winter.

Obrigado Soraia.

Thanks Tammy - I spent about half a day in this area making photos last fall - I was awestruck too.

Thank you Tim - we can only stand in awe and praise Him for what He created for us to enjoy.

Thank you Jeanne - we are truly blessed, although we don't act like it.
