Creation's Witness Photography celebrates the connection between God's creation and His Word. I am amazed by the wonder of creation and the power of God's Word. I hope that you experience the grace of God's light in your life.
God created a beautiful place for us to live. I enjoy photography as a way to contemplate God's creation. It makes me study, look, and think more about God's awesome power as I enjoy being outside.
Reading the Bible every day nourishes my soul and makes me truly alive. Without the Bible I would be lost in the world. Through faith alone in the work of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord, I have been called out of darkness and into His wonderful light.
In 1988 I purchased a Pentax 67 medium format film camera. In 1998 I began using a Toyo 4x5 large format film camera. Digital cameras followed with a Canon 5D2 and more recently a Canon 5DSR in 2015. I currently use prime lenses (15, 25, 35, 90, and 200 mm) which allow for wide angle to telephoto compositions. In 2023 I upgraded my phone to an iPhone 14 Max, which has some decent photographic ability. The Canon remains my main workhorse, but on whimsical hikes the iPhone can be used to capture interesting photographs.
I use Lightroom and Photoshop to create photographs representing God's amazing creation. Most images are single frame capture (one picture), some are multiple frames combined to capture a wider view, a larger range of light, or an increased depth of focus. Many of my photographs of the night sky are made by combining two images, one with the camera stationary and one with the camera rotating to follow the star movement. My desire is to present images that engage the heart and mind with the beauty, mystery, and wonder of the natural landscape.
Creation's Witness Artwork - Bible Verses
The Scripture used in Creation's Witness prints is quoted or paraphrased from public domain versions of the Bible (World English Bible, American Standard Version, Darby Translation, Young's Literal Translation, and the King James Version).
I appreciate your photographs of God’s beautiful world, coupled with His enduring words - many of them my favorite Bible verses!
I’m a musician, playing the violin and other instruments, and would like to serve the Lord through music and leading Bible studies in my home. Your prints would add the perfect touch to my home.
I have just ordered the four prints online. They are all so beautiful! I pray that they may bring many more closer to a knowledge of our loving Lord and Savior. Thanks for using your talents to bring glory to God. I am hoping to use my music to the same end. After all, that’s what we are still here on earth for!
Thank you for the prints, which arrived yesterday. They are lovely, and I’ll work on putting them in a frame and up on the walls. May God continue to bless you and use your art for Him.
In His eternal faithfulness,
My name is Tony Nolan. I wanted to write you and just encourage you about your work. I have book marked your site and everyday I go to it before I start my devotional time with our Lord. I feast on your images and soak under the water of the words you marry with them. It has proven to be quite invigorating. I am currently the Tour Pastor for Steven Curtis Chapman and Jeremy Camp. I also serve as Band Pastor for Casting Crowns. One of my responsibilities is to spiritually build these guys up. Your web site helps me do that. Just wanted you to know what kind of "print" you are leaving in our spirit! Keep that finger clicking brother!
We got the prints. I framed them and we have them up already. THEY LOOK STUNNING. I love having the image to view and the Word to absorb. We will be getting more.
Much to my surprise, on Valentine's Day, my husband handed me a strange shaped Fed Ex box as he reminded me of his tradition to give me flowers on this holiday. Flowers? In that box? Baffled, I carefully opened the box finding, to my delight, one of your gorgeous prints . . . bright lavender and golden wildflowers bursting through the cracks in barren rock.
Just that morning, I had been asking the Lord to enable me to hope in Him even in the midst of life's unexpected "curve balls". Now, gazing at your artwork, the words of Psalm 40:1-3 whispered of God's faithful love in my life!
Today, the picture came back from the frame shop. It is breathtaking! We hung it right near our front entrance, where we will pass by every time we leave or enter our home. Daily, it will remind us of what God can do to bring life to our barren hearts, and of His hope in the midst of trials. So far, I can't walk past it without standing and gazing and thanking God for the hope we have in Him.
Thank you SO much for using your gifts to exalt our Savior.
