Through Him All Things Were Made

Through Him All Things Were Made

The wide open skies of the high desert offer awesome unobstructed views of the magic that happens as the sun sets and moon begins to rise. 

Many times we find ourselves outside, in silence, watching day turn to night.  The billions of stars begin to twinkle and dance.  We find peace and enjoyment in knowing none of this is a mistake or by accident but by His perfect design.  We are blessed in the knowledge that, "Through Him all things were made."  John 1:3

Hmmm, and just think one of his creations, thinks he is the creator that should be walking on least that's what many say around the beltway.

John what a great picture of the Moon, see I can take evening photos, but forget Sunrise photos that is for other to take:) BTW do you represent buyers and sellers in the Deming area?

That's a neat moon shot, John!  Love the orange glow, and wondered if it was caused by wildfires in the area!   I'm reminded of an old saying my mother often would repeat, "Red moon at night, sailor's delight.  Red moon in morning, sailor's warning."

Billions of stars - wow! I was out in the country south of Austin and couldn't see all that many stars; must be awesome. Great shot too!

Hi John, an awesome photo of the moon. I love the exposure.

Have a fabulous evening.

Posted by Irene Durocher, (Coldwell Banker BUYERS AGENT) almost 8 years ago

John, one of the things I really miss about being in a big city is, we do have great moons, but with the lights, we can't see the stars very well.  That's a problem I'll bet you don't have.

Wow! That's a photo worthy of a planetarium. Amazing shot! Super scripture to compliment the magnitude of the shot, too.

John - wow, what a terrific shot.

How did you do it? What lenses did you use? Any filters? How you manages to get the "spots' on the moon?

GREAT picture. Moon shots are pretty difficult to get. I do love our Western Skies. I love sitting in my hot tub at night and just watching the stars and listening to the night sounds. We have two ponds, so the bullfrogs are always singing at night.
