He Paints

Sometimes the most profound things need few words.
These photos are of the sky tonight after the rain.  
Don't you marvel at the skies when it seems
God is saying something,
and beckoning us to enjoy Him? 

They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty,
and I will meditate on your wonderful works.
Psalm 145:5

Hey girl! Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the world today. These pictures that you posted today are beautiful!

To answer your questions: My camera is a Nikon D60 which is really an entry level camera; it is not even considered a professional grade camera but I really like it! I kept the settings on automatic for the first year that I had it and finally ventured into Aperture mode and Shutter Priority mode and even Manual mode occassionally. It really makes a difference in my photos. I really like Nikon DSLRs but a lot of people like the ease of point and shoot cameras.

A step down from the Nikon d60 is the Nikon D40 which my father-in-law has and it is fantastic too. I used his camera to take a few spur of the moment photos and posted them here: I used the lens that came with his camera. You might check or Bh camera for their prices.

To get your name of the photos: I do it 2 different ways. The ones from the Botanical Gardens with the black box and white lettering I did in Photoshop CS4 (which is an expensive program although Paint Shop Pro or Photoshop Elements are much less expensive and can do some of the same things).

On the other photos, I simply use my free account where I can resize my images and "decorate" or add text to the photos. I am just trying to avoid having someone take my pictures and that is why I put my name on them. Naturally, to have them printed, I would make my name much smaller before applying to the photo.

Thanks so much for your questions. I hope this helps a little bit. Blessings to you!

AWESOME shots of HIS majesty! I love pictures of the sky--the clouds--all the beauty He lays out before us--takes my breath away!

Especially snow. He knows.

You have been on my heart--and I just wanted to pop over and hug you quick today!

Have a blessed weekend!

The other night while out In Grand Haven, it was right before a storm. The sky looked like something I have never seen. It looked like a painted landscape of sand with long brush strokes across the sky. Smooth and variegated in color. Breathingly beautiful! I love how God paints the sky!
